Once the railroad finds out what is going on, they do everything in their power to shut down railroad crossings and try to figure out how to stop this runaway train that is speeding towards a dangerous part of the track in the middle of a high population city, Stanton.

Frank and Will are the two men driving train number 1206 and they decide that they have a chance of slowing down train #777 if not stopping it altogether. After several edge of the seat attempts at stopping the train, including the death of a veteran conductor, Frank and Will finally slow 777 down enough to safely traverse the track through Stanton and eventually stop the train, saving the town and saving the railroad lots more money than they would have lost.

He not only gave the audience factual information, but also makes sure the audience of all age understands it by including animated cartoons, graphs, and pictures.
BRIEF 1 Introduction During this coursework, I will be wiritng about and creating an amusement park ride, which provides a place for relaxation and temporary escape. It is an outdoor centre providing various rides, games and entertainment, live performances, food and beverage, and retailing.

So how does education and fun go together. Theme parks with their roller coasters and other attractions make great science.
Even the reverberating sound of their engines brings to mind the great roar of a fire-breathing dragon with smoke plunging from its exhaust-pipe nostrils. The first ride on one of these crazy beasts gave me an instant rush of adrenaline. As the death-defying ride started, a lump in my throat pulsed like a dislodged heart ready to walk the plank. As the ride gained speed, the resistance to gravity built up against my body until I was unable to move. An almost slight pause as the wheel reached the top of its climb allowed my body to relax in a brief state of ordinariness.
