Full steam ahead.....
A man who had spent his whole life in the desert visited a friend. He'd never seen a train or the tracks they run on.
While standing in the middle of the RR tracks, he heard a whistle, but didn't know what it was. Predictably, he's hit and is thrown, ass-over-tea-kettle, to the side of the tracks, with some minor internal injuries, a few broken bones, and some bruises.
After weeks in the hospital recovering, he's at his friend's house attending a party. While in the kitchen, he suddenly hears the teakettle whistling. He grabs a baseball bat from the nearby closet and proceeds to batter and bash the teakettle into an unrecognisable lump of metal.
His friend, hearing the ruckus, rushes into the kitchen, sees what's happened and asks the desert man, "Why'd you ruin my good tea kettle?"
The desert man replies, "Man, you gotta kill these things when they're small.

Seems that a railroad had a old steam locomotive that spent most of its time in the roundhouse being repaired.
The division superintendent of motive power wanted to put this engine back into service on a full time bases.So he sent a telegram to the shops master mechanic:
How can we get #30 back in full time service?
Back came the reply from the master mechanic:
Raise the whistle and insert new locomotive.
Those are great guys!
That becomes more evident in everyone here everyday
