Plot summary

In the middle of the tracks Nils pulls on the handbrake and turns off the engine. The train is due in three minutes. Nils leans back in his seat and waits for death, when Gösta happens to turn up in his tractor. Nils lays the blame on a dodgy motor and Gösta helps him to push the car off the track just before the train thunders by. Then Gösta decides that Nils is in shock and recommends a nice cup of coffee. According to the timetable, another train is due in three hours’ time. Before then Nils has to drink a cup of coffee with Gösta, say thanks for the help and return to the track in time to meet his death.
