Train Boys is the project created by me, Pocket Owl, a Manga artist from Taiwan traveled through U.S. and Europe in the past few years .With the experience from the traveling and the stories people tell,and the dream of adventure, I started this project in 2018

 The story depicts the unique atmosphere of traveling by freight train through the eyes of two young men, Spy and Nett,who happened to met each other hopping on the same freight car


 Whether they like it or not, they get to know each other through sharing the experiences of riding a train: 

the rhythmic noises, fresh air, and peaceful view, along with changing emotions ranging from loneliness and peace to fear and excitement

The story is base on real world background setting

combine the knowledge of freight train, Yaoi ( Boy's Love)

adventures through the giant and magnificent land of the American Midwest
