People at Work®: The Railroad Police
My friend Nancyleah called me up to tell me there was a train derailment because NOTHING makes her happier than a good train derailing. She is descended from people who set out lanterns at night to draw ships to the rocky shores and when a boat floundered they'd all race down to the shore and finish off the survivors and gather up the booty. A JUBILEE! But I digress...
One of the most exciting parts for her, however, was hearing that there were actual RAILROAD POLICE! This is Railroad Police officer Tim Falvey. I was disappointed to see that he arrived by car and not one of those little two handled carts that you pump and they ride on the tracks.
He asked that I not Photoshop his image TOO much so I left off the lens flare Pepsodent smile thing. Do not be fooled by this smile, Gentle Viewers. It was lightning quick and you WON'T see it if you ride a box car or put a penny on the tracks.
