  fredthebear: There are various mate-in-5 or 6 lines after 38...Rb3+ and 39.Q+ etc. (It depends upon White choosing to uselessly interpose with and then loose his queen or not.) Black can fall on his sword quicker. The quickest finish seems to be 38...Rb3+ 39.Kc4?? Qc3#.

One example of a Railroad Mate is 38...Rb3+ 39.Kc2 Qb2+ 40.Kd1 Rd3+ 41.Ke1 Qb1+ 42.Ke2 Qd1#. The Black rook and queen support each other forming a track for the White king between them.

There are lots of ways to mate in the final position above depending upon White's reactions. If the White king tries to stay away from the rook, then the Black queen checks on Qe3+, Qd3+, etc.
