Eric, John Axon must be turning in his grave !

Yes there are British songs, which have the same connection to folk as does filk, or other "specialities", not to say it aint music, but of a enthisiast nature.

Somehow I can't see much future for the "Song of the HST", or the "Ballard of Railtrack". - Or is this a case of (Big Grin) Country and Great Western ?

And at the risk of having boots, shoes, and other objects thrown at me, or the nearest Monitor :-

Cosher Bailey had an engine,.....

BTW Did you know you can sing "Achy Breaky Heart" to the soundtrack of the old Argo Transcord recording of a 28XX climbing Stormy Bank on the Llanwern Iron Ore trains - Railwayline dancing ???
