I've Got a Thing About Trains

      It's that time of year when I put together a road song compilation of some sort.  Two years, it was a truck driving song comp so this year I decided to go for a train song (is there such a thing?) theme. There's a couple of songs that aren't necessarily about traveling by train, but I just couldn't bear to leave them off.
