Donald and Douglas alternate taking a ballast train for James to take to be used in a project. One day, Donald slipped on the frost and slid into the buffers. The next day, some men we sent to repair them. Douglas then left cars for James to take. Douglas went onto the siding and sipped on the frost and crashed into the buffers, covering himself with the paint that had not dried.
