Description: 

This "sharp curve" on the railroad track "below town" provides I.O. Snopes with an extra source of income: since engineers driving the north-south train can't see the mules he has Mr. Hait put on the track in time to stop, he can charge the company for their "accidental" deaths. The scheme works well until Mr. Hait becomes a casualty himself.
