York , April 7th 2016

Having visited the National Railway Museum in York today, I’ve been inspired to write this Tritina in honour of the railways….enjoy .   P.S. Comes with Flying Scotsman Pic!

The Horses came down the country Roads

Delivering by cart Black gold – Coal

To move the Iron Horse by Steam

And these mighty horses – fuelled by coal

Moved across rails on road

Powered by steam

Wheels of steel moved by steam

Replaced wagons on road

using engines fuelled by coal
