The railway system seems apparently very simple
trains run on rails from station to station.
Okay there are sometimes problems with schedules
and maybe snow in the winter or leaves in the fall on the tracks
but apart this then it should be very simple, isn’t it true ..?
That is until you see the many mazes of tracks – really intricate
what kind of people brains are architects of these ..?
The train drivers must be heroic and brave knights
in our modern world then are the shifts of the tracks computerized
but in the good old days when it was manually human work
maybe the heroes of the past, who with long rods did the job with virtuosity.
“My mind rebels at stagnation
so give me problems
so give me work
so give me the most abstruse cryptogram
or the most intricate analysis
and I am in my own proper atmosphere.
but I abhor the dull routine of existence
I crave for mental exaltation”
(Arthur Conan Doyle – british writer)
