Train Heating System

I spend a lot of time traveling.

I moved away to a big town when I was eighteen years old… Since then, I visit household every two months, however booking flights can get costly, especially when I am traveling that frequently, so I try taking the train to cut costs. I don’t mind the long train rides. It allows me to get some labor done. It is also a more comfortable ride than on an airplane or on a bus. However, despite my positive track record with riding the trains, my most recent trip was actually uncomfortable. Usually, the train is quite hot and I can take off my coat despite the winter weather outside. This time, the train was the exact opposite. I boarded the train during the early hours of the day. It was hot at this point, so I slept through the first couple of hours of my trip. However, I woke up halfway through the trip to an unbearably freezing train. I tried tightly wrapping my coat around myself, but that did not help at all. I overheard the train conductor and another passenger speaking and learned that the other train cars had heat, but my train automobile did not. During one of the tied up stops, the train conductor went under the train to check the boiler. He said that he reset the system, but this made no difference. There was nothing else he could do to rectify the situation, so my relaxing friend and I had to ride the remainder of the trip in a cold freezing train car. I am hoping that I never have to experience such an uncomfortable ride again!
