Recently some of my friends have been sharing great train songs. I too love these songs, just as I love train journeys. Most of the train songs are narratives either about the train or the engineer often ending in some form of tragedy. Recently the train I was on was held up after a suicide on the line. It was quite a strange and sad experience which made me realise that every train driver must have a story that is embedded in his mind and haunts his dreams. This not the story I want to relate here. The most enjoyable journey to date was two days travelling between Jasper and Vancouver in Canada. I collected photographs of that wonderful experience and thought this song would be an opportunity to tell my story with illustrations so take your seats for a far from rocky ride on the Rocky Mountaineer. Just call the steward if you wish for refreshments as we go along. I love Canada!
