Thomas the Tank Engine lobotomised by fat (remote) controller


So, considering what I know about desert mining towns' history in the American West, who provides the Independent Service Providers for Paraburdoo and it's ilk in NW Oz? Perhaps the company should bring them "on-board" and train them up to be "operators" as well as "handlers".

We would call that a "two-fer" hereabouts. Double the income, double the fun. They could throw in the Doublemint Gum for free.
