Passenger train

If an electric train travels 90 miles an hour in a westerly direction and the wind is blowing from the north, in which direction is the smoke blowing?
There is no smoke from an electric train! :-)

Railroads were initially made up of wooden rails dating back to Germany in the 1550’s. The railroads were called Wagonways, in which carts pulled by horses was the mode of transportation for the Wagonways. In 17th century wooden rails were replaced with iron.

Lets draw train now. This is a passenger train.

  •  Start by writing a big turned around L. Top it with two 11, first one smaller than the second.
  • Join their tips with I.
  • Write two small O for wheels, and a turned around seven in front.
  • Write three 1 inside big 11 to start making window. Join all the free edges with I.
  • Join their tips with I. Engine of train is ready.   

  • Lets now make the passenger car. Start by writing one big 11 and two small 11 inside this big 11.
  • Join the top of big 11 and both tips of small 11 with I.
  • Write two O for wheels.
  • Join the free ends of big 11 , just remember not to cross out Os.

  • Choo Choo!!
Our passenger train is ready for Nidhi and Prasad !!

Did you hear about the boy who had to do a project on trains? 
He had to keep track of everything!:-)

Here is a more funny one.
A passenger train is creeping along, slowly. Finally it creaks to a halt. A passenger sees a conductor walking by outside. "What's going on?" she yells out the window. 
"Cow on the track!" replies the conductor. Ten minutes later, the train resumes its slow pace. Within five minutes, however, it stops again. 
The woman sees the same conductor walk again. She leans out the window and yells, "What happened? Did we catch up with the cow again?"
