With the Shady Rest miles from any town, and the only road a badly rutted fire road, the Cannonball was supposedly the only way to get to the Hotel. As the years unwind, however, the writers ignored this fact more and more and have characters arriving without any regard to when, or from where, the Cannonball arrived. Sometimes, person(s) A would enter the hotel immediately after the train gets in, and then a few minutes later person(s) B would enter, but person(s) A never saw them on the train. Other times, people arrive at the hotel, and then a few minutes later the train arrives. See more »

Great writing and characters that make you wish time would have stood still. It gives you hope that someday in your travels, on some unfamilar road, the Shady Rest is just on the other side of the hill.
