Storyboard Text

  • This is a scene from  Patricia   C.   McKissack  's "11:59" where Lester tells his tales (most importantly the 11:59 train) to Pullman car porters  .
  • “Lester, you   know   anybody who   ever   heard   the   whistle   of   the   11:59   and   lived   to tell—” 
  • “Not   a   living   soul!” 
  • “You   haven’t   got   word,  Lester?   Tip   boarded   the 11:59   over   in   Kansas   City   about   a   month   ago.”  
  •   “Sorry   to   hear   that.   That   just   leaves   me   and  Willie   Beavers,  the   last   of   the   old,  old-timers   here  in   St.   Louis.” 
  • “I   haven’t   heard   from   ol’   Tip   in   a   while.   Anybody know   anything?” 
  • "It was nice seeing you too Lester, have a great rest of your night!"
  • "It's getting late, I'm gonna hed out. It was so nice  seeing you  guys  again and thank you for listening to all my stories!"
  • "No. I'm not ready. I've got plenty of living left."
  • While Lester was walking home from the restaurant he hears the train whistle and nervously looks down at his watch and sees that it is 11:59, which means he now has 24 hours to live. 
  • Lester was taking every  precaution  he could to survive the 11:59 train.
  • "I won't eat or drink anything all day, that way I can't choke, die of food poisoning, or cause a cooking fire." 
  • Lester's time ran out and he was finally caught by the 11:59 train. A couple of days later, some friends went to his apartment to look for him but they found him dead on the floor with his precious watch showing the time of 11:59.
