I've been doing some research on symbolism in Hills Like White Elephants and I've found a few good symbols but I'm curious about a couple that I think I found on my own.

The story mentions that the couple is at a train station between Barcelona and Madrid, could this be a symbol of the couples limbo?

The story also mentions a curtain of bamboo beads and I think it might be a symbol since it's mentioned so many times but I'm unsure.

The story also mentions two lines of rails in the first paragraph, could this be a symbol of the disagreement of the abortion since I'm assuming the rails are like that to allow one train to go one way and another to go the other way?

Please let me know what you think and if there's a symbol I'm missing/overlooking please let me know. THANK YOU!
