And YAY for 'penguin' tag!
Basically three of the passengers we meet on the train had died on probably the Titanic or just a ship that hit an iceberg. The young man had tried to save the two children but was unable to and drowned with them. A farmer was on the train with them would also died and had a bunch of apples and gave it to them as a reward or way of consoling them.
