THE TITLE OF THIS POST MAY LEAD YOU TO THE CONCLUSION THE OLD MACHINIST DOES NOT FEEL A WRECKED TRAIN IS A SERIOUS THING. BUT, ALAS, HE HAS HUNG OUT WITH MANY TRAINMEN OVER THESE PAST FIFTY YEARS AND HAS BEEN SHOWN THE SERIOUS SIDE OF RAILROADING AS WELL AS THE HUMOROUS SIDE. SO, WE HAVE A HUMOROUS TITLE FOR A SERIOUS SUBJECT. NOW, TO PUT YOU INTO THE CORRECT FRAME OF MIND BEFORE YOU VIEW THESE PHOTOGRAPHS, TRY TO IMAGINE YOU ARE ONE OF THE TRAINMEN RIDING THE TRAIN. SCARY IS IT NOT?
