Got me thinking about one of my favourite songs about trains, although it is a sad one, from Hamilton's adopted son Daniel Lanois.

Death Of A Train:

Union Station, tombstone high No more tears, this fountain dry Nameless faces, just headlines We don't ride that train no more

No resistance, turn my head They could go out East instead Newfoundland, land of my father I don't ride your train no more

Cold steel shining, Battle Creek Eyes are heavy, rain and sea Massey-Ferguson memories Don't ride that train no more

Hey there captain, is that you Could you tell me, tell me what to do I been twenty years on that Soo line We don't ride your train no more

Smoke rises from the face of sand dreams about, dreams of beaver dams Sam can't hear quite like he used to Tell them why we don't ride no more

Hey Pierre Trudeau oh, where are you? My friend to lead us through these hard times, so much confusion I don't hear your train no more

I can't ride no more...
