    "What a Crock!" yelled Jake as he pulled the throttle open and spun the drivers over the chicken feathers and manure. Pulling the sand dump he got the consist rolling forward. "WHOOO--WHooooo" yelled Jake and popped the cassette into the boom box sitting next to him. A low steady bass line eased out of the speakers followed by a steady riff on the drums and then the singer began,..."Hellbound Train... I been so wrong, Too late now I'm moving on, Conductor standing, watch in his hand, Got to get aboard take you to his land........" and the train rolled on into the night.

Everyone for a mile around took a collective gasp as......

Past the curve straight in the path of the car (if it didn't make the turn) was......
