Thread Name: Songs About the Disappearing of the Trains
Subject: RE: Songs About the Disappearing of the Trains
I did not spot a mention of Tony Hill's song about his Dad and the LMS railway - Very nice one indeed. I can only remember snatches including what I think may be the refrain or bit of the chorus

"Who's ever heard of the LMS railway
and who's ever herad of my dear old Dad"

Anyone have the rest?

Love Stan's Last Train - One of my favourites. He also occasionaly does another one about trains that we should all be glad no longer exist - The special trains taking people to concentration camps in WW2. Once again very poignant without overdone sentiment. The man realy is a genius.
