55 - Safety First

He peeked inside the cabin and was daunted at what he saw. Nothing had prepared him for this adventure. The responsibility was enormous, but in spite of the ripped vinyl, rusted valves and antiquated displays, he felt up to the challenge. Gingerly, he took his seat.











Only he would be responsible for what happened next.











About Friday Flash 55: The challenge is to write a complete story in fifty-five words. If you've written a 55-flash, go let The G-Man know!

@Alice: Yes, it's the inside of a train. Dan and I went to the Galveston Railroad Museum on Wednesday. They suffered a lot of damage from the 2008 hurricane, so it was a bittersweet visit.
