Any one with a brain! 

Can someone please explain to me why you would send a train 250 miles 
past all the industries and yards where the freight is supposed to go
just to have it flat switched out just to turn around and send it right
back to where it came from. What the hell kind of crazy crap is this. We
passed every industry and yard and just laughed our asses off at how
stupid this shit is and wondered if we should have called the customers
as we went by and told them we had their cars but they got to take them
250 miles the opposite direction to switch them out of the train but
they would get them delivered in a couple of days. This is precision
railroading???? I just don't get it!
