    OK story lovers, here we go again. This time, all passangers should be existing fictional characters, as outlandish as possible, preferably, not expected to be on a train, any time, any where, and some how fit the description "Slow"...let's be decent to handicapped persons, though, OK? so...crawling and creaking out of the station, here we go :D

    "As this was a grandly ornate car, the can (bathroom, WC, porcelean pony) had a nice mirror, and Paul Bunyan being somewhat of a vain man decided to launch into a long and colorful spill about himself. The important notes: He was/is a logger, He is very big (very, very, very big), has an affinity for a an overly large blue OX (ironically I seem to recall its name to be "babe"???), and has a beard. He drug his axe on the ground to create the grand canyon (he want's all of you non-America dwelling people to know that...) but only exists in folklore."

    Paul Bunyan info

    Here is a little bit of info on Paul Bunyan, plus what I believe to be an actual photo of the man and his ox that was placed onto a postage stamp (ironic, isn't it?). I think he may have last been seen in the Far North chopping off icebergs from the ice sheets so he could make himself a glass of iced tea.

    "Conductin' electricity!" And he stuck a lightbulb in his mouth and it lit up.

    Realizing that both the train AND the board have been really slow lately, the engineer went back to the engine, got online, and posted an addition to the "Once upon a Train 2, 'the Slow Coach'" thread.

    "There!" he said. "That's that! Now let's see what this baby can do!" He then pushed one of the levers forward, but instead of going faster, the train...

    The steam shot out in a Hi pitched SCREAM!! It was the Banshee whistle, in full regalia, Howling it's song. Paddy looked quite befuddled, he hadn't been anywhere near the whistle chain. The lever he had pulled was supposed to.........
