RAILROAD PATH BRINGS DECLINE.
TUMBLEWEED RESIDENTS FRET AT FUTURE.
The once-bustling town of Tumbleweed in Gaptooth Ridge, New Austin, is growing quiet. The shops sit mostly empty. The blacksmith is idle. The population is dwindling as wagon after wagon of families leave. Since the railroad bypassed Tumbleweed in favor of Armadillo, trade and commerce has moved away.
