One day she decided to find out if what her cousin Ramón had said was true: that a metal pin is capable of derailing the train. She thought about it deeply and weighed up the consequences, as a seven year old would do. So, she got the metal pin, put it carefully on one of the rails - in the way that Ramón had told her - and she waited. She had with her a packet of cotton, plasters and merthiolate. If something so insignificant was capable of destroying another very powerful thing, it was going to be necesary to cure the injured.

Un día decidió comprobar si lo que decía su primo Ramón era cierto: que un alfiler era capaz de descarrilar el tren. Lo meditó largamente y sopesó las consecuencias, como puede hacerlo alguien de siete años. Entonces consiguió el alfiler, lo puso con cuidado en uno de los rieles —tal como había dicho Ramón— y esperó. Llevaba con ella un paquete de algodón, curitas y merthiolate. Si algo tan insignificante era capaz de destruir otro algo tan poderoso, iba a ser necesario curar a los heridos.
