Rule of the Rails

Iron Monkey's Rule of the Rails: A train is just a big elevator that goes sideways.

(Early this morning while I was sleeping, this thought came into my head, and in my dreamlike state I thought it was the most profound thing I have ever discovered. Now that I am awake, it does not seem quite so useful.)

this profundity of yours makes me want to argue!

trains are really only like sideways elevators when they're used in that people mover sense. you know, airports, disneyland, et al. real trains, the badass kind, can take you cross state lines, man.

how many elevators you know that'll turn your probationary misdemeanor into a felony, hmmm?

Yeah, and how often have you heard mothers tell their children "now don't play by the elevator, I don't want you to get hurt."
