Passenger Pick Up is a magazine story.
Daisy is down at the docks and sees Cranky hard at work. Daisy boasts that freight is not as important as passengers. This upsets Cranky. The next day, the Fat Controller sends Daisy to pick up some railway inspectors from the Mainland, but the ship's gangplank is damaged by a strong wave. Cranky comes to the rescue by using a special metal cage to lower the passengers near Daisy.
