Off The Rails!

At one of the old manually-operated railway level  crossing gates the linesman started to close the gates over the road. He had only one of the twin gates pulled over when the telephone in his signal box began to ring. The signalman left one gate open after checking his watch to make sure there was time and left to answer the telephone.

 
A minute later on his return he found an irate English motorist hopping up and down.
 
    "My good man" he exclimed "Why the devil did you leave the gates half shut?"
 
    "Weill" said the old railwayman "A wis hauf-expeckin a train."
