Trains –

A plain clothes officer makes his way back home still in ‘costume’ and carrying his weapon. He meets trouble on the train with three drunks. How does he handle it? With force or does he talk his way out of it. Choosing the latter the situation is saved with an unexpected bonus…..

 

A lively meeting with varied contributions.
