Loco 673, at National Railway Museum, York

I watched from the other platform
the girl with the not so happy smile
she let the express go by her
and was sat by the tracks for a while
sat on her own – as the trains went by
something began to question why?
so over the platform I started to walk
and sat by the platform – and the two of us talked

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
