Old SW-1

How many years you’ve run…

From the thirties to fifties

Built as nifty

Little engines for branch line fun!

I’ve seen your like in Keene,*

And north of Deerfield you’ve been…

Like steamer Moguls

And switching yards till they’re clean!

A few of you have survived,

Like the one in the picture running by…


A long time to have been,

Useful doing smaller jobs right!
