Puns about monorails always make for decent one-liners.

I was riding a passenger train once, and passing the time by reading "The Raven," "The Cask of Amontillado," "The Pit and the Pendulum," and similar. The conductor passed by and asked it I was liking depot.

I always prefer Reading Railroad stories unless there's just a Short Line to monopolize my time.

To relax on a train, try listening to some Coal Porter.

Don't ever sleep on a train. Very bad for your health and could lead to pullmanary problems.

Speaking of Spanish cities, did you know there's one that doesn't allow hermits? Barcelona.

The local Oregon mountaineering/drinking club wanted to call themselves "Boys from the Hood", but were issued a cease and desist letter. They all decided to just get drunk on Rainier.

This set of puns got off to a Rocky start. Try to relax, go out and milk a cow, if you have one; you know, get your inner Teton, if it Alps you.
