Puppies on railway track

leave a comment »

Writing prompt: An out of control train is about to run over a pile of happy puppies. You are standing at the control switch and can pull the level to direct the train onto a different track, saving their lives. But that other track has a smaller pile of equally happy puppies on it.

From a train driver’s report:

Regarding the accident near Puppsville station
I didn’t see the puppies until it was too late to stop the train. They appeared suddenly on both of the tracks leading into the station. There was no way I could avoid hitting them. I only had a couple of seconds to decide what to do before we reached the point where the two tracks diverged. I decided to direct the train onto the other track, hoping that the train’s sudden change in direction would make the puppies jump off the track. They didn’t.
