    It is funny, how memory works. Now, without even thinking about it, lines from songs I did not hear for ages come popping up my mind :D :
    "Lover please", Clyde McPhatter
    "The Pover of Love", Huey Lewis and The News
    "Hello Josephine", Jerry Lee Lewis
    "Hobo Blues", John Lee Hooker

    How's about some Heavy Metal about some Heavy Metal?

    Train of Consequences - Megadeth.

    Night Train - Guns and Roses. <---well this one is actually about drinking but it does have the word "train" in its title.

    :D

    That was the first song listed.
    And I think it's highly debatable whether or not the Monkees were the greatest rock-n-roll band ever. ;)

    Arrgh -- and I thought I'd checked everything! At least I got a reaction about my Monkees comment! :)

    Neil Young's Southern Pacific, complete with sound effects. It's on his "Re-ac-tor" album from 1981. Also Train to Nowhere by Savoy Brown.

    Sorry Herc, I didn't notice you caught Arlo Guthrie first. I really liked that song.
    Does anyone remember Boxcar Willie? Nothing but train songs, too many to list here, but I always liked the last verse from "From A Boxcar Door" -

    But

    Sorry for my inability to hit the right key. Here's the last verse from "From A Boxcar Door"

    But my travels are not over
    There's lots more I've just gotta see
    Every day's a new adventure
    And I thank the Lord for letting me be free
    When I hop aboard a boxcar
    And hear that might engine start to roar
    You know that big or small- I'll see you all
    from a Boxcar door.....
    ---Boxcar Willie

    Aw, come on guys you are forgetting the popular "Buffalo and Susquehanna" the music was even published in the back of the book with the same name.
