On a train, Smithe, Robins, and John are the fireman, conductor, and the engineer, but NOT respectively. Also aboard the train are three businessmen who have the same names: a Mr. Smithe, a Mr. Robins, and a Mr. John.
Mr. Robins Lives in New York.
The conductor lives exactly halfway between Columbus and New York.
Mr. John earns exactly $20,000 per year.
The conductor's nearest neighbor, one of the passengers, earns exactly three times as much as the conductor.
Smithe beats the fireman in billiards. The passenger whose name is the same as the conductor's lives in Columbus.
Who is the Engineer?
(In reply to Solution...........
Hi, Denise. I'm new and I came up with Smith as the Engineer too. But I
had to let you know that the Fireman is a position on a train. At least
there used to be one. The Fireman keeps the fire burning on a wood- or
coal-burning engine. So yes, the Fireman works on the train. ;-)
