    out of the bushes casey heard the sound of a motorcycle and a figure dressed in red, white and blue leathers waving for casey to follow him down the grade, which he had no choice in the matter but to do, the train picked up speed and evil kanevil did the same, side by side they raced down the grade to the ever aproching george as the bike took to the air and the train followed suit. And as they landed on the other side of the.....

    warn the stations up and down the line about the bridge. Just about that time Paul Bunyon happened by and seeing the collapsed bridge, commenced lifting it up out of the gorge and with a few logs that he kept in his back pocket (for just this kind of emergency) propped the bridge back in place. When the president of the railroad saw what he had done he yelled at Paul "......

Just about that time the 5:15 came over the top of the hill with a full head of steam heading straight for the ex-bridge. The president screamed.....

    ..."those aren't my logs you birdbrain, put them back and get me the right ones before I get really mad." Meanwhile, Casey realizes that if he's is running the 5:15, it's only 4:30 and he is way ahead of schedule so he tells the brakman to slow down since there is no way a train is suppose to be early. "Glady" says the brakman, "but..."

    ... and so he was about to, but Casey on the other hand didn't aways play with a full deck, and thought that if it was really 4:30 tomorrow, that he must have been to the station already and he was now heading in the wrong direction, so he slammed the throttle in reverse and...

In fact you can have a free lifetime pass to ride my train anytime you want. Just don't cut me down any more. My board of directors won't think that I will be able to run a railroad if I'm any less a man."
