Stay on the track, no matter what!

One of Jason's favorite books was about a little steam locomotive named Tootle. Gertrude Crampton, Tootle, collected in A Treasury of Little Golden Books (New York: Golden Press, 1960), pp. 16–19 .

Tootle wanted to grow up to be a good steam train that people could depend on to be safe and reliable for trips between two big cities. He had to go to school and take courses in train subjects, like "Pulling the Diner Without Spilling the Soup," "Puffing Loudly When Starting," and "Stopping for a Red Flag Waving." Tootle had to do well in all subjects, but there was one subject he had to do perfectly.

It was "Staying on the Rails No Matter What." The book tells how Tootle learned this subject the hard way.
