"swimming in the towns water supply." Was it ever made clear if that was the drinking water tank--or the water tank for the steam engines? RR stops for steam engines almost always had water tanks, to fill the steam tanks in a hurry. Then usually a slow windmill or other cheap pump to refill the tank at leisure for the next train.

It is not that the gasoline explodes, but that sailors often pay off the fuel jockey to blow up those noisy powerboats. Conveniently, blowing them up at the fuel dock provides a perfect cover story. After all, those boat owners will all tell you *they* didn't blow up their own boats...but no one listens to them.

For those who were too young to actually see it first hand, here's a link to a clip:

duration 1 minute and 48 seconds.

Notice the petticoats on the water tower at the end.

Ok, I'm done.
