The train could have been on fire or the smoke could have been from an eletrical fault. You never said it came from the boiler funnel.

That is the easiest question ever!
A train could have answered that. That is just like saying" If a flying car is driving on the moon and it runs out of gas will it fall to the ground or will it float?"....Answer= flying cars arent invented..point being...ez riddle

it was easy.....but that flying car one is completely different...I think those types of riddles are utterly stupid.....

this one though...was fun...I almost started doing the calculation, then thought it'd be good to read the question again. I caught it the second time.

ya... ummm... i think maybe too many people on the train were passing gas... maybe they were all doing it at the same time!
