One of the things we had were competitions. You see, when you’re running like that you have one train running going that way and one coming back this way and, somewhere along the line, you meet each other. So if I’m on this train and I find some mail that’s miss-sent and needs to go back this way, we would have a certain point that I would leave my mail and they would leave their mail there and we’d change. So we had this one crew that we knew had this guy that had a tremendous aversion to any kind of reptiles. So I was working the rack that day and I found this foot and a half long garden snake. So I put it into the pouch for the turn back and when they got this pouch and the guy dumps it up on the table and a snakes sitting there, and he’s out!
