With just two min­utes to go be­fore the Royal Mail night ser­vice is due to join the track for its daily 40-sec­ond double cir­cuit of the main line, the en­thu­si­ast re­alises that he can’t find his rail­way sig­nal­man’s hat, with­out which he doesn’t have the au­thor­ity to close the points af­ter the train leaves its sid­ing. If he leaves the points open, the train will cer­tainly de­rail as it com­pletes its first cir­cuit, lead­ing to de­lays across the whole lay­out. His wife self­ishly re­fuses help as he des­per­ately searches through the wardrobe for the miss­ing cap. Luck­ily, he finds it just time to get back up the lad­der into the loft to avert dis­as­ter.
