By now we’ve all heard about this incident. The engineer said he needed to wake people up, to tell the truth, so people would realize the conspiracy.

But what if the conspiracy is THE TRAINS? 

See, back on her 12th and final war time patrol, the USS Barb (SS-220, above) sank a TRAIN! That’s right, the crew created an improvised demolition charge and attached it to a railway bridge. Several crew members deployed from the boat under cover of darkness in a dingy and paddled ashore, planting the charge on the bridge with a contact detonator. As they rowed back to the Barb the train came down the tracks, tripped the detonator, and blew the bridge out from under itself. This successful covert action is commemorated on the Barb’s battle flag (below) by the addition of a train at the bottom center.

What if this train and engineer were seeking revenge on the US Navy for their fallen comrade? What if this was just the start of a train uprising? Open your eyes, sheeple, before it’s too late!

(P.S. The train story is not only true, it marks the only known landing on the Japanese home islands by the US during the war. It and many other actions of the Barb and her crew are chronicled in the book Thunder Below! by her final commanding officer, Adm. Eugene B. Fluckey. If you’re quarantined at home and want a good read, I highly recommend it.)
