All Aboard!


These days it doesn't seem like there are a lot jobs that allow smoking on the job (at least not here in the States). This guy evidently has just such a job though. He was the conductor for a small train that travels through one of the local parks. The smell from the pipe was pretty powerful considering it permeated the area well after the train had passed us by. It did make for an interesting image though as the train and the conductor were both puffing along.

I used to go to that sort of place when I was little. "Train Town" they called it. Though, I don't recall a pipe-smoking conductor.

Let him smoke his pipe and be happy! There are so many other things we would like to ban, why worry about this little something?

you're not kidding the only time I can really smoke at work is when I'm hanging off the side of a building , what a trade off

Yes, it seems that in order to have this fun engineer job, smoking would almost be required!

I grew up riding that train. I don't remember if the pipe was part of the job description or not. In the deep south smoking is still allowed. His smoke is minor compared to the fumes the chemical plants are exposing into the air.

Whole impresion of the train and conductor would not be authentic without his pipe.

Some may feel squeamish about eating it, but rabbit has a fan base that grows as cooks discover how easy they are to raise — and how good the meat tastes.
