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?
It is possibe that any or even all three could be the engineer, due to the fact that they hold these titles IRRESPECTIVE of one another, meaning that they each are able to perform the other's duties.
I still think it's Robins. My second choice would be Robins and John together. My third choice is all three.
This is the knowledge that I bring, it's universal and worldwide.
