Come on along and put on the nosebag with the boss hogger.  He orders some eggs with highlights but suggests you have a wreck on the mainline.  Follow him to the roundhouse and hitch up the engine to the jigger.  Then it's jingle the brass and ride the point.  Have no idea what I'm talking about?  Well, I wouldn't have either before I read this book.  Take  quick trip back in time and find out about the life of a railroader.
