A PORTER LOCO?

A PORTER locomotive,

See the “shield under the cab,

No fire in the boiler

Just a steam pipe power grab…

The boiler’s in the building–

They hook up to recharge,

It was a local industry

That used it by-in-large!

I don’t have specifics,

But it could run compressed air,

Especially ’round ammo

It posed no danger there…

It looks like a steamer

Without a smoking stack,

A little switcher engine

On a local railroad track!
