It is the late 1800s, long before Social Security, when hundreds of thousands of homeless and orphaned children ran in the mean streets of New York. Some worked as newspaper boys, formed gangs, stole food, were jailed with adults, or were placed in 'educational' orphan asylums with not much hope for a bright future. But the lucky ones rode the train west. The Orphan Train is their story.
