Steam Trains

I am glad that I grew up in an era when steam trains still moved passengers and freight around this great country of ours.  To have felt the gound tremble when a big eight wheeler came chugging by, to have heard the  whistle from far away as the train headed my way………..these memories cannot be replaced.

  1. Love Guy Clark’s song:

    “Look out here she comes she’s comin,
    Look out there she goes she’s gone.
    Screamin straight thru Texas,
    Like a mad dog cyclone.”

    He wasn’t writing about a steam train, but hey- close enough.
