HAVE YOU EVER FELT LIKE THIS?

I'M NOT ALLOWED TO RUN THE TRAIN
OR SEE HOW FAST IT WILL GO
I'M NOT ALLOWED TO LET OFF STEAM
OR MAKE THE WHISTLE BLOW
I DO NOT EXERCISE CONTROL
OR EVEN RING THE BELL
BUT LET THE DAMN THING JUMP THE TRACK
AND SEE WHO CATCHES HELL

I worked for Conrail for about 10 years ... that bit of doggerel is posted all over the place. It was associated with the job of Trainmaster or Yardmaster.
I WAS allowed to run the train ... I was a road/yard freight conductor. And more than once pulled on the throttle while an engineer slept off an encounter with John Barleycorn.
