Leaving on that Midnight Train, heading to the parking lot of Jim’s Package Store in Oak Bluffs. Sounds crazy right? Well, with the Midnight Train Food Truck there nightly, it’s sure to become a late night hotspot. Jordan Wallace has been working on the Midnight Train Food Truck for the past two years.
