Freight Trains

Freight train, freight train, run so fast
Freight train, freight train, run so fast
Please don’t tell what train I’m on
They won’t know what route I’m going

I hear the train a comin’
It’s rolling round the bend
And I ain’t seen the sunshine since I don’t know when,
I’m stuck in Folsom prison, and time keeps draggin’ on
But that train keeps a rollin’ on down to San Antone..

~Johnny Cash

Do you hear that whistle down the line?
I figure that it’s Engine Number 49
She’s the only one that’ll sound that way
On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe

I’m sitting in the railway station.
Got a ticket to my destination.
On a tour of one-night stands my suitcase and guitar in hand.
And ev’ry stop is neatly planned for a poet and a one-man band.
Homeward bound

~Simon and Garfunkel

 

 

 

 

Silos and Grain Elevators

 

 

The 30 mile stretch of highway 70W from Muleshoe, Texas to Clovis, New Mexico which parallels the railroad line, features a fantastic chain of grain elevators and silos.  I was captivated by the industrial beauty of this particular “elevator alley”.
