Aurora went into trains,

Memory of this one remains…

In N scale,

It would not fail,

But burnt one out hauling heavy scrap metal remains!

It hauled heavy loads up a hill,

Seven and one half percent, by sheer will…

Drive wheels slipped

At too steep a tip,

A break in a rail stalled and it stopped still.

For parts I bought two or three,

It runs near endlessly….

A blast from the past

Whose heritage lasts,

My MINITRIX Li’l Donkey!
