Eigh trains / Ocho trenes

Granta Magazine acaba de poner on line la traducción de un capítulo de Trenes hacia Tokio, dentro de su último número, dedicado íntegramente a Japón. La traducción corre a cargo de Tom Bunstead.

The first train goes from Moka to Shimodate. It leaves at twelve minutes past six in the morning on a Tuesday. Moka station is five minutes’ walk from my house. Moka station is made in the shape of a train: the doors are done like the wheels, the windows in the building like the little windows, the east face is finished with a large metal circle like the snout of a steam engine. The actual steam engine is in an adjoining hangar. It’s the city’s pride and joy. (aquí)
