RESERVE BUYING: SAD STORY

RESERVE BUYING:  SAD STORY

He wanted to buy a train

Lettered for “BOSTON AND MAINE”…

All the ones

Were limited runs

He never could catch again.

Considered as a purist,

He modeled a train for tourists…

“N” scale in fact,

He laid his track

Intentions were the demurest!

He found two coaches on-line,

On reserve he thought it fine…

To wait and see–

Eventually–

He said, “they could be mine.”

Meanwhile, for other things

He fancied, the register rings…

Sickness struck

And out of luck

He gave up his B & M dreams!

      But very few PAN-AM passenger cars. Corporate identities change…especially after the uproar over labor rules by the “expansion” of the SPRINGFIELD TERMINAL to the whole system…remember?
