Came across this song while I was revisiting the site. Yes, I am still trying to fix links Amazon broke on the home page. But this one was worth a new page. ... mber_9.htm

When I started these forums, I didn't realize that the needed so many updates. So I've been working on getting it fixed, but at the same time, I keep coming up with songs that I really should have put on it. So as the grows and gets updated, I'll be posting updates here. This is a good place for you to ask questions, upload information about classic railroad-related songs, etc.

Keep in touch,

I couldn't very well post Roger Miller's "Engine, Engine Number Nine" without coming across his bigger hit "King of the Road" about five hundred times. Okay, so it's about a hobo, not about trains. But it mentions trains. And it's one of the catchiest tunes ever written. ... e_road.htm
