The engine and railroad featured,

Both are curious creatures…

The yellow ALCO*

Reliable but old,

Delights railroad history seekers!

QUINCY BAY took track it had,

From an earlier century laid…

Got business going

At formational growing,

And didn’t do half bad!

Moving long train cars around,

It’s a wonder so few hit the ground…

Reliably ran

Within its lifespan,

With a business model sound.

It’s become a utility,

Of waste disposal for the City

Bigger and better

Funding put together,

Than the fledgling “QUINCY”!

–Jonathan E. Caswell

*ALCO  is a shorthand way of referring to the American Locomotive Company, manufacturer of the switching locomotive featured above.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
