It made me question some of the things I've seen, while traveling. You are there once, on some specific day. I promise this engineer is back in Japan, telling his friends America still uses steam engines. I was a lot more convincing than I probably should have been.

Actually, trains are his passion and he knows more about them than any of us. He just let you ramble and now he's back in Japan telling everyone what an ignorant American he ran into in the US that thinks big steam engines are still the latest and greatest tech! Everyone in the car chuckles as they settle back in their seats traveling 200mph in their bullet train that, btw, has been in service >50 years and hasn't had an accident yet!

Respect for seniors is a cultural trait of the Japanese, as is their desire that others not lose face.
