Pofalla zur Bahn? Soll er doch!

I know what 'Bahn' means. But how can 'zur Bahn' be translated into English? And what does 'doch' mean in 'Soll er doch!'? How am I to understand it? Is it used emphatically?

    Pofalla zur Bahn = Pofalla geht zur Bahn = Pofalla wird Mitglied des Bahn-Vorstands werden

    I have no idea how to translate the short form properly into English. Maybe "Pofalla joins German Railway?".

    doch = for emphasis
    Soll er doch! = Soll er doch zur Bahn gehen! = Let him join German Railway if he wants, I don't care.
