    of course, one cannot overlook another Chuck berry staple " Johnny B Goode "

    He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack
    Go sit beneath the tree by the railroad track
    Oh, the engineers would see him sitting in the shade
    Strumming with the rhythm that the drivers made
    People passing by they would stop and say
    "Oh my what that little country boy could play"

    I like this 1971 version by the Grateful Dead as much as any out there

    Bat Chain Puller - by Captain Beefheart (Don Van Vliet). A seriously weird song about a piece of signalling equipment and a person who operates it.

    "..This train with grey tubes that houses people’s thoughts, their very remains and belongings."

    OK, That made me feel very ill, I thought Korn was so awful ! So before I poke my eardrums out with sharp pencils, I need to cleanse my mind and soul with some real music to my ears, and wash that noise out of my memory:

    Captain Beefheart is an acquired taste, the two tracks on here are not as bizarre as some of his stuff! which was great for annoying ones elders........

    There was another thread about this. But, I like too many favorite railroad songs, not just one.

    Make train simulators great again #MTSGA obiter dictum

    Le Chemin de Fer by Charles Valentin Alkan 1844.

    This is a study (etude) for using repeated notes and is far from easy to play. Alkan is known for his extremely difficult piano music.
