Aren't people on the train called "passengers"? Do passengers run the train? Not the last time I looked. And isn't all of this moot because a train goes where its track leads it? I mean, have you ever seen a train make a right turn, or turn around?
Note Prentiss' helpful hints in parentheses. Robert, I can understand metaphors -- as long as they come from literate human beings.
The next entry is pithier, but not more comprehensible:
So if $87 billion is paint, then George Bush must have originally painted himself into a corner in Iraq by means of ... a lot of money? No, he invaded Iraq with America's armed forces.
Traditionally, people who have painted themselves in a corner are in trouble because they can't move -- not because they want more paint.
