Item Description: Createspace, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Those men will bear watching--they are up to some mischief, Fairbanks. I thought so myself, Mr. Fogg. I have been watching them for some time. I thought you would notice them--you generally do notice things. The speaker with these words bestowed a glance of genuine pride and approbation upon his companion, Ralph Fairbanks. They were a great pair, these two, a friendly, loyal pair, the grizzled old veteran fireman, Lemuel Fogg, and the clear-eyed, steady-handed young fellow who had risen from roundhouse wiper to switchtower service, then to fireman, then to engineer, and who now pulled the lever on the crack racer of the Great Northern Railroad, the Overland express. Ralph sat with his hand on the throttle waiting for the signal to pull out of Boydsville Tracks. Ahead were clear, as he well knew, and his eyes were fixed on three men who had just passed down the platform with a scrutinizing glance at the locomotive and its crew. Fogg had watched them for some few minutes with an ominous eye. He had snorted in his characteristic, suspicious way, as the trio lounged around the end of the little depot. Good day, he now said with fine sarcasm in his tone, hope I see you again--know I ll see you again. They re up to tricks, Fairbanks, and don t you forget it. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781494365776

Item Description: Rarebooksclub.com, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 246 x 189 mm. Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt: . terrific strain put upon her powers of speed and endurance. Whew! there was a tilt, whistled Roberts, as No. 93 scurried a curve where she threatened to dip clear over sideways into a swampy stretch which had undermined the solid roadbed. Ralph gave a sudden gasp. He had watched every movement of the machinery. To his expert, careful ear every sound and quiver had conveyed a certain intelligent meaning. Now, however, No. 93 was emitting strange noises--there was a new sound, and it boded trouble. It came from the driving rod. Roberts caught the grinding, snapping sound, stared hard from his window, craning his neck, his eyes goggling, and then drew back towards the tender with a shout: Go easy, Fairbanks; something s tearing loose--look out! The warning came none too soon. Ralph slipped from his seat and dropped backwards into the tender just in time. A giant steel arm had shot through the front of the cab. It was the right driving rod. It came aloft and then down, tearing a great hole in the floor. It shattered the cab to pieces with half a dozen giant strokes. It smashed against the driving wheels with a force that threatened to wreck them. Then it tried to pound off the cylinder. The flying arms next took the roof supports, snapping them like pipe stems, and buried the fireman in a heap of debris. Jump! gasped Roberts. I stay, breathed Ralph. And, stripped of everything except her cylinder, No. 93 dashed on--a wreck. CHAPTER XVI-THE WRECK The battered locomotive continued its course for nearly half a mile, with engineer and fireman crouching back on the coal of the tender. There was a diversion of the circling driving rod as the pace slackened. Then a violent hissing sound told of a leak somewhere in the machinery. The great steel locomotive slowed down like a crippled giant. She s dead, said Roberts, choking a queer sound way down in his throat. Old 93! Ralph jumped to the ground and the fireman after.
