His original plan is fine,

For his tiny railroad line…

One salt track

Pushed WAY BACK,

Takes mush less unloading time!

He wanted two tracks  to switch,

To fill a high-volume itch…

But only one

Looks better–more fun–

With less mechanical glitch.

IN FACT just one track allowing,

A mid-track conveyor housing…

Over a small pit

Between rails is it,

Unload another car without drowsing!

–Jonathan Caswell

The poem discusses changes in progress on his N scale train layout.  The above picture shows a cement unloading shed in New Hampshire, as one of the inspirations similar to what the author has in mind to model.

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?.
