"All boys want to be real locomotive engineers someday. All of us want to run big locomotives that pull famous trains, blow whistles, give signals and do all the other things that make the engineer's job so much fun. Now boys don't have to wait until "someday" to be real engineers. They can be Southern Pacific Junior Engineers. It is very easy to be a Junior Engineer and it doesn't cost a cent." (How to be a Southern Pacific Junior Engineer).
