What is the Place “Train Station” in the Yellowstone?

By the name train station, it seems that there would be a train platform but that’s not true. The train station is a key symbol for the place that is part of Yellowstone Ranch owned and governed by the Dutton family. It is the specific place that is used to diminish the carcass of the rivals. The train station is a remote location however the chances of bead body findings are zero.

Why do we call the place a train station? The answer to this question is revealed when Lloyd warns Fred, a wrangler from season 5 is the Black long train is at his back or coming on the way. He was actually mentioning his death. Right after his warning to the man, he murdered him and threw his body in the death zone.

Where the Train Station Is Located?

When we read about Yellowstone National Park, the remote location is located on the Wyoming border near Montana and counts on Dutton’s family ranch. However, originally the place was a highway turnabout the South of Darby Montana on Sula Peak. In fact, the 50 sq. mile space and the second silver are known to be death zones. In means of no rules, no restrictions, and lawlessness.

The park is a federal place and according to the American law if nobody lives at the place and because of the legal loophole the culprit theoretically runs off the crime he attempted. A place where a crime could be performed but the performer could not be declared for it legally.

The reality of the Zone of Death

A land in the Yellowstone National Park that is spread over 50 to 60 square miles in Idaho. As a matter of fact, it is a place with different rules of the constitution. According to the role of law, any crime or offense that happened in the state cannot be litigated under any jury or law. The state touches the board of three massive lands Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana. The zone of death in Yellowstone Park has several unique rules that implemented and caught people’s attention.

The idea of the train station is quite resembled to the real theory of the zone of death. Yellowstone is included in the federal land where loophole theory was introduced in the year of 2005 by Brian Kalt. The theory states that the law can work against escapee but don’t have the power to litigate crimes that happened in the vicinity of Yellowstone National Park. On the other hand, if the crime happened in the Idaho state the jurors should be from Idaho state. It is the part of 6th Amendment right.
