reverie is fantasia, devaneio
chugged to a halt is hard to explain. Think about a steam train slowing down in the station...chug, chug, chug pause chug longer pause chug shuuu pshiu clang. The chugging noise gets farther apart and lower as the engine stops.
Or, think about a calhambeque or old car slowing down as it runs out of gas...cough, cough, sputter, clank, stop ......the car bucks and rocks as the engine jumps on it's supports....then silence
So, the person's dream or fantasy ground to a halt at the end of the jetty.
