Who is the Engine Driver
The following puzzle, known as the Smith-]ones-Robinson classic, is a lively test of reasoning power. It is reported that, in one group of 240 people trying it, only six found the solution. But there is no "catch" in it, and many people have worked out the answer in ten minutes. Every fact is important.

On a train, Smith, Robinson and Jones are the ticket inspector, guard and engine-driver, but NOT respectively. Also on board the train are three businessmen who have the same names: a Mr Smith, a Mr Robinson, and a Mr Jones.

1. Mr Robinson lives in Manchester.

2. The guard lives exactly half-way between London and Manchester.

3. Mr Jones earns exactly 8,000 a year.

4. The guard's nearest neighbour, one of the passengers, earns exactly
three times as much as the guard.

5. Smith beats the ticket inspector at snooker.

6. The passenger whose name is the same as the guard's lives in London.

Who is the engine-driver?

Unless I'm reading too much into something, it's Robinson.
