My 4th dream....  
I woke up in a panic from a long story dream. It was very visual with a few major settings. One was huge old mansion that a couple of old men lived in. It was very 1700/1800 in design with bits old ages past stored everywhere in its walls. The two old men were The inheritors of a railway fortune from one of the rail company mogul families. I had arrived at the house to collect research for a story I was writing on the mystery of the house and an event that had taken place somewhere in the 40s or 50s. A party had been taking place with some famous hollywood people and some very rich sponsors when they suddenly disappeared. No one but a few of the staff that went on an errand and the two boys that attended the event ever turned up again. Interviewing the staff was impossible because they were now listed as deceased, so I investigated some of the background on them (there were three. A woman and 2 men) leading to another mystery listed in the womans history. Somewhere in her ancestors time an entire town of people disappeared. A ceremony for a special train platform was held but no one knows where or what happened to it. The platform and all of the attendees vanished with only a single photo left behind. I notice that the woman in the platform picture and the servant woman I am researching look eerily similar. I eventually get back around to interviewing the old guys at the crazy house. I notice the house is full of museum pieces and oddball clockwork things including a room that looks like the picture of the platform ceremony. A space under a big metal oven that doesnt seem to quite belong looks suspicious but after moving it over I find a piece of metal bolted to the floor. I get lost in the house and notice some suspicious servants who from a quick look resemble the three I was investigating but I cant be sure. I then stumble into the younger of the two old mens rooms. Its huge and has a giant clockwork/steampunk looking cabinet with glass windows looking in. I stare in horror and interest when I notice it contains what looks like props and clothes and dolls but that the things in it are all related to the missing hollywood people. The dolls are replicas of the missing girls. The clothes are things that were worn by the attendees.... there is a cane with a distinct carved cane head from one of the sponsors. A small book with a news article is peeking out of the edge of the cabinet and as I reach down to get it I trigger something and the whole cabinet swings open to a set of stairs leading down into murky lit hallways. The article shows more of the platform story and gives a clue as to where it may have been located. I add a few facts up in my head and figure out that in all probability that train platform no one can find is under the Mississippi River. about 5 miles from the house I am in. I also realize the people I have been seeing dont just look like the old pictures ... maybe they are the same people. I stare in horror focusing at the cane and the starlette doll wearing its same outfit as the day she vanished...... then I wake up
