the lost property library

As the smoke clears on the once crowded platform, the outline of the Station Master is all that's left as the train pulls away. He's here to welcome you to the Lost Property Library - a place where lost stories, memories, and objects come to be archived and kept safe. All around you trunks and suitcases brim with exciting tales and adventures to discover. Above your head hangs a sign that reads...

"Please look after these stories."
