WHEN FLEMINGVILLE ROCKED

It’s very quiet now,

displays are shut up or gone…

but at one time

It was a train line,

Where excursion trains ran on.

The early eighties was when,

I made my acquaintance of them…

Guys and wives

The museum thrived,

For about a decade then.

When we were married,

On the Sunday train we were carried…

Could have ridden in the cab–

Kinda wished I had–

We haven’t been back since then!

The operation moved,

Losing the railroad lease behooved…

Wellsboro Junction, P.A.

Is where it’ll stay,

It’s problems considerably smoothed.
