Mac leaves a ticket, regains it, and loses it. Written by DocRushing

When Mac and John seek to catch a train, the sound of a steam whistle aboard a steam locomotive blows repeatedly. Amtrak has never operated a steam locomotive. In the USA the last one went out of regular passenger service during the 1950s. All Amtrak locomotives have always been diesel or electric, not steam, and they use air horns, not steam whistles.
