Scene: A neat frame house not far from the B&M Roundhouse
A Locomotive Fireman enters the home through the mud room attached to the back porch. He is covered in dirt.
Fireman: "Honey, I'm home."
Wife (from kitchen): "How was your trip, Dear?"
Fireman: Oh, it was okay. The engine broke an axle and derailed. I got sprayed with ballast and dirt, and fell out of the cab, but otherwise it was a pretty good trip."
