The guy was sleeping on the bunk in the caboose when a prankster slipped a lock or maybe just a spike through the hasp on the outside of each door. They then climbed up top and quietly put a big old bucket over the stove pipe. Deprived of a good draft, the coal stove began belching its smoke INSIDE the caboose. When the guy woke up gasping and coughing, he found the doors locked and had to break a window to get out.LOL that's harsh. But funny as hell.
