    well this might throw up a few new items , my first ever single was chuck berry's ' let it rock '

    Lyrics
    In the heat of the day down in Mobile Alabama
    Working on the railroad with the steel driving hammer
    I gotta get some money to buy some brand new shoes
    Tryin' to find somebody to take away these blues
    "She don't love me" hear them singing in the sun
    Payday's coming and my work is all done

    Well, in the evening when the sun is sinking low
    All day I been waiting for the whistle to blow
    Sitting in a tee pee built right on the tracks
    Rolling them bones until the foreman comes back
    Pick up you belongings boys and scatter about
    We've got an off-schedule train comin' two miles out
    Everybody's scrambling, running around
    Picking up their money, tearing the tee pee down
    Foreman wants to panic, 'bout to go insane
    Trying to get the workers out the way of the train
    Engineer blows the whistle loud and long
    Can't stop the train, have to let it roll on

    Great song , which i was listening to just recently, the Ry Cooder version
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aa9K6hRxHAkHey, Porter
    Hey Porter
    Would you tell me the time?
    How much longer will it be
    'Til we cross that Mason Dixon Line?
    At daylight would you tell that engineer to slow it down
    Or better still, just stop the train
    'Cause I want to look around
    Hey, Porter
    Hey, Porter
    What time did you say?
    How much longer will it be
    'Til I can see the light of day?
    When we hit Dixie will you tell that engineer to ring his bell
    And ask everybody that ain't asleep to stand right up and yell
    Hey, Porter
    Hey, Porter
    It's getting light outside
    This old train is puffin' smoke and I have to strain my eyes
    But ask that engineer if he will blow his whistle please
    'Cause I smell frost on cotton leaves
    And I feel that Southern breeze

    Hey, Porter
    Hey, Porter
    Please get my bags for me
    I need nobody to tell me now that we're in Tennessee
    Go tell that engineer to make that lonesome whistle scream
    We're not so far from home so take it easy on the steam
    Hey, Porter
    Hey, Porter
    Please open up the door
    When they stop this train I'm gonna get off first
    'Cause I can't wait no more
    Tell that engineer I say,
    Thanks a lot and I didn't mind the fare
    I'm gonna set my feet on Southern soil
    And breathe that Southern air

    The songs that do not play, blaring over, wiping out the railroad train sound effects track of a Trainz video

    I like to listen to songs when building a route in Surveyor

    The first two are stone classics , probably their most fertile period. Of course trains always featured large in the blues and country music, one way of getting a new life for poor folks was to ride the rails someplace and hope it was better than what they had to put up with in their old homes.

    What about the classic big band/swing tune by Glenn Miller and His Orchestra Chattanooga Choo Choo? Chattanooga Choo Choo was the first song to receive a gold record for selling 1.2 million copies. Then there's also Long Black Train, written and recorded by country music singer Josh Turner, who made a music video at the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum which features TVRM 2-8-0 #610. Long Black Train spent 30 weeks on the Billboard country charts, reached a peak of #13, and was certified Gold by the RIAA, and can be heard while riding the theme park Dollywood's Dollywood Express. The Dollywood Express is pulled by one of their two ex-White Pass & Yukon 2-8-2 Mikados taking 7 former East Broad Top boxcars converted into passenger cars on a 20-minute, three-mile round trip up into the Great Smoky Mountains that surrounds Dollywood.
