MODEL TRAIN TIP-OVER!

A model painted “Susquehanna”

Ran south, toward Havana…

Stubbed a toe

flipped into the snow,

The icy rail joint got hammered!

The model–a “C-430”,

From ALCO was very dirty…

Handrails bent

As over it went,

It looked like it was hurting!

There wasn’t another for sale,

Either fix this one up or bail…

Old enough to scrap–

Recycle parts back,

And rare to find in N scale!

–Jonathan Caswell
