CNR Spot Inspection
A signalman’s job at the railway

Karl is hired by the Canadian National Railways to work as a signalman at a small station in Fort Steele, British Columbia. His wife Kathy is relieved that he has a steady job with the railway.

A few weeks later the stationmaster decides that a spot inspection is in order.

“What would you do if two trains were approaching each other on the same line?” he asks.
Karl answers, “I would put all the lights on red and stop the trains.”

“Your lights are out of action. What now?”
Karl answers, “I would light flares.”

“They’re damp and won’t work, and by this time the trains are really close.”
Karl answers, “Well, as a last resort, I’d go and get Kathy.”

“What could she do?” he asks.
“Nothing,” Karl answers, “but she’s never seen a train crash before!”
