It was the ambition of an eleven years old boy in Kannsas City to be an engine driver. Born without arms, he had been to specials schools where he learnt to use his feet as hands. He spent all his spare time watching trains and one day his dreams came true. Seeing a deserted engine, the boy climbed in. He had no difficulty in starting it up with his feet. Soon he was travelling along at forty miles an hour. Signalmen could not see the young driver, so they set out to stop the train. Meanwhile, the boy reached Missouri, stopped the engine himself, and then made it go backwards.

When he was near home, railway-man caught up with an engine and stopped it. At first, he was very angry, but he smiled when the boy said simply. I like trains.

"Well, I'm glad you don't like planes answered the railwayman.
