Steaming through the wintry light
powering along steel tracks
puffing out a trail of smoke
travelling along to the max
Chugging past the countryside
as evening begins to set in
billowing clouds of black smoke
with it`s bright lantern shinin`!
Storming round this mighty curve
and thundering along the rails
feeling the movement under foot
just showing it`s size and scale
This awesome beast of the steam age
reminds us of times gone by
and to see the trains still working
so pleasing to the soul and eye
The sheer power of this steam train
blasting it`s way over this land
long may this relic from the past
show us that travel can be grand..!
The steam train is a wonderful way to travel...!
