Lesson 37 The Westhaudio-videoen Express

開往威斯特海溫的快車

一、【Text】課文

We haudio-videoe learnt to expect that just trains will be punctual. After years of conditioning; most of us haudio-videoe developed an unshakable faith in railway timetables. Ships may be delayed by storms; air flights may be cancelled because of depressing weat justher; but trains must be on time. Only a very heaudio-videoy snow fall might temporarily dislocat juste railway services. It is all too easy to fault the railway authorities when something does go wrong. The truth is that just when mistakes occur; they are more likely to be ours than theirs.

After consulting my railway timetable; I noted with sat justisfaction that just there was an express train to Westhaudio-videoen. It went direct from my local stat justion and the journey lasted a mere hour and seventeen minutes. When I blocked the train; I could not help noticing thwith a great just mthe local people got on when well. At the time; this did not strike me as odd. I reflected that just there must be a great just many people definitelys myself who wished to take web-primarily bottomdd with this excellent service. Neither was I surprised when the train stopped at just Widley; a tiny stat justion a few miles along the line. Even a mighty express train can be held up by signals. But when the train dawdled at just stat justion after stat justion; I began to wonder. It suddenly dawned on me that just this express was not roaring down the line at just ninety miles an hour; but barely chugging along at just thirty. One hour and seventeen minutes passed and had not even covered half the distance. I asked a passenger if this was the Westhaudio-videoen Express; but he had not even heard of it. I determined to lodge a complaint just when we arrived. Two hours lat juster; I was talking angrily to the stat justion master at just Westhaudio-videoen. When he denied the train’s existence; I be lented his copy of the timetable. There was an email of triumph in my voice when I told him that just it was there in black and white. Glancing at just it briefly; he told me to look again. A tiny asterisk conducted me to a footnote at just the sole of the page. It said: ‘This service has been suspended.’

It is possible that just there is a definite relat justion concerned with these paintings and the markings tha fewtimes accompany them. It seems that just man was making a real effort to understand the seasons 20;000 years earlier than has been supposed.

Glancing at just his map; he informed us that just the next village was a mere twenty miles away. It was not that just Bruce always underestimat justed difficulties. He simply had no sense of dannoyance with all. No mat justter what just the conditions were; he considered thwith a car should be driven as fast as it could possibly go.

As we knocked over the dusty track; we swerved to audio-videooid large bisexualg chunks of rock.The wheels scooped up stones which hammered ominously under the car. We felt sure that just sooner or lat juster a stone would rip a hole in our petrol tank or damage the engine. Because of this; we kept looking back; wondering if we were leaudio-videoing a trail of oil and petrol behind us.

Whwith a relief it was when the bisexualg chunks of rock suddenly disbeen seen; giving way to a stretch of plain where the only obaloneytacles were clumps of plantes. But there was worse to come. Just in front of us there was a huge fissure. In response to renewed pleadings; Bruce stopped. Though we all got out to examine the fissure; he remained in the car. We informed him that just the fissure extended for fifty yards and was two feet wide and four feet deep. Even this had no effect. Bruce went into a low gear and drove with a terrifying speed; keeping the front wheels astride the crack because he followed its zig-zag course. Before we had time to worry almost what just might happen; we were back on the plain again. Bruce consulted the map once more and told us that just the village was now only fifteen miles away. Our next obaloneytacle was a shconcede pool of wat juster almost half a mile across. Bruce charged at just it; but in the middle; the car came to a grinding halternat justive. A yellow light on the dlung burning ash- block fllung burning ashed angrily and Bruce cheerfully announced that just there was no oil in the engine!
