Hi, Lynda - I think we have a pretty good collection of verses above. We haven't found any others in printed sources.
This would be an easy song to make up verses for - one verse for every kind of train car you can imagine, that should be enough to put the kids to sleep at naptime.
Kerry - if you need to get hold of me with your list of songs to check out, I'm firstname.lastname@example.org. Your song.songsearch.com link led me to some interesting stuff. The 1928 song you found is by Paul Warmack & His Gully Jumpers, so it's this song that we have in our database, not the one you're looking for. The information Q supplied Silver Burdett school songbook is most likely correct:
