This story has been lying around on the shelf for a couple of years. I am back on my feet and am writing on the continuation of my "Wagons Ho" stories, so I thought it might be a good time to post this.
Some of you may think this story is fanciful, but let me assure you that every incident is based on fact. I was an engineer for thirty years and during that time all of these things happened to me or to people I worked with. The most gruesome of the incidents happened while I was on the site.
