Ashland 2018 Train Day
Miss Izzy B. Crumpett will come out to play
In her usual beautiful, most wonderful way—
To see all those trains from the south and then the north,
Ashland Train Day, you see, will again be holding forth.
Miss Izzy B. Crumpett has gotten the word—
2018 Train Day is to be on November the Third.
Record crowds are coming, be safe when you park,
Then try to catch COTU, Tender & Cinder, or Ken and Leroy, before it gets dark!
Miss Izzy B. Crumpett will have an exciting time
[Even if I cannot get it in all to properly rhyme].
Visit all the vendors, stores, and the Ironhorse Café,
I’m pretty sure y’all will have a most splendiferous day!
And take LOTS and LOTS of pictures of them trains on the CSX gauge—
We’ll love to see them posted on Virtual Railfan’s Lounge Facebook page!
