High gas prices might have more of us considering traveling under our own power soon enough. But, I bet that none of you have ever thought you might have to get out and push... a train! I wonder just how hard it is to push a train along. Must be pretty hard, it took a few hundred people more than half an hour to push this one just twelve feet. Why were they pushing in the first place, you might ask? Good question. A passenger pulled the emergency stop cable on the electric train, which happened to finally come to rest on a dead spot, known as a "neutral zone", apparently. So, the train conductor asked the passengers to get out and push! Seriously! Do you think that this would be a good enough reason to be late for work?
