Its a fine use of an underused song form and the vocal is stunningly good.

btw I loved the steamtrains still running nearby our house in the 50`s -brings shivers to think of them appearing from a tunnel.
oh, and you had a pretty nice bike!

Robert


Thanks Robert. Janice much appreciated your vocal comment. And we are glad to hear you are a fellow steam train fan!
