COLORFUL VARIETY HE LIKES!

By the Mighty Mumford

Growing up in “Bingo-town”,

lived on a hill looking down…

Chased early CONRAIL,

Which scraped the pail,

For units that could run!

A dog’s breakfast some said,

Of a mixed up lash-up  some red…

Some in black,

A PENN CENTRAL knack,

Of making it look as though dead!

i like variety

Of engines in dissimilar livery…

Red, white and blue

Striped on silver will do,

Were special times foe me!

–Jonathan  Caswell
