Pat, That piece is truly wonderful. It needs to be preserved somewhere, why don't you write a book? Even an e-Book? I'd buy it.

I remember Dave Prine (John's brother) and Tyler Wilson, who used to perform as The National Recovery Act bemoaning the dearth of new train songs. Dave observed that while trains used to be “comin' down the grade makin' 90 miles an hour” they now travel 30 miles an hour down a straight track and just fall off halfway along. Not much romance there.
