....station. Waiting on the platform. Already had my 2011 season pass to Marchduel - it's in the northwest - third class mind, I'm on a budget. No conspire for this short run so the single carriage is slowly backed up to the platform. Glanced back up the line and there's two steamers pushing this little thirty-two'er back and there's still one to be seated.
Enter the last passenger - a toff no less - all hat and no trouser. We're all a little suprised, this is 3rd class for wepts sake. I've decided that I've seen enough and detrain. Guard asks if there is a problem. I gesture to the two tractors now coupled to the carriage and tell him that in my opinion, there's way to much engine on that track for my liking. He sighs and nods, tells me thats the way of transport these days.
I reply that I'd rather walk and then turn and leave the station.
