Silverton/Durango Steam Train

The Durango/Silverton steam train brings to mind some of Arlo Guthrie’s lyrics from City of New Orleans:
Dealin card games with the old man in the club car;
Penny a point, ain’t no one keepin score;
Pass the paper bag that holds the bottle;
Feel the wheels rumblin neath the floor;
And the sons of Pullman porters and the sons of engineers;
Ride their fathers magic carpets made of steel;
Mothers with their babes asleep, are rockin to the gentle beat;
And the rhythm of the rails is all they feel.

Bound For Glory
