    What can I say apart from it being overwhelmingly a thankless job...

    Synopsis:
    - The 'B' team is actually an 'F' (for fail) team...
    - The skill discrepancy is enormous...
    - The expectation is the train is the be all and end all super juggernaught that will single-handedly win the failing war effort...
    - These absurd delusionary fantasies harboured by the 'F' team will, of course, be dashed...
    - The rath of a large segment of the 'F' team is turned on the hapless train driver put in an impossible position...<sigh>

    "Ask not what your train driver can do for you...
    Ask what you can do for your train driver..."

    Listen up, nubs... :p...and I will give you a few hints how you can, in conjunction with the train, help the war effort...

    1. Your train driver is your friend...
    Cherish him/her...
    Protect him/her...
    Introduce him/her to your sister/brother...

    2. The enemy is not your friend...
    Despise him/her...
    Frag him/her...
    Introduce him/her to your sister/brother...
    That will teach 'em...

    Now, the train is a powerful piece of "equipment" and there is a strategic philosophy which utilises this asset to it's best advantage...

    1. Rush into the fray without considering the overall situation...
    2. Leave your team mates behind so you have no infantry support...
    3. Position yourself to be attacked by fixed artillery emplacements...
    4. Stay stationary to provide an excellent mortar target...
    5. Allow yourself to be surrounded so as to be attacked from all sides...
    6. Enjoy the quick and glorious death for das Vaterland!!!
    7. Revell in your state funeral which proclaims your worth as a useful idiot...

    I thank you...
