The Switchman

The Switchman is a story of a poor railroad management. Everything seems to go amiss with the trains. They either leave very early, the trains do not follow timetables nor tickets, they may not reach intended destination and sometimes, they may leave passengers in the desert. The management is also responsible for building bridges which they never do. Instead they encourage passengers to dismantle trains, carry them across rough terrains and fix them again. The rail road management is more concerned with customer accommodation instead of maintaining the system. In some parts, the railroad is so bad that accidents are expected yet instead of repairs, the management encourages towns to set up.

The switchman is also a tale of trickery or false hood. The very confident switchman may not be a legitimate one after all. He may just be a man out for adventure and storytelling. How does an old switchman never board a train to anywhere when he has worked so long with trains? In one instance he even says it is a privilege to board any train. How would he know when he has never boarded one? His bad advice that the stranger should lodge for a month is also false because soon another train arrives. He has numerous stories about trains and stations he has never visited so they may be false or created stories as well. The switchman also does not know what trains go to T. and encourages the stranger to board any train.
