On the Railway named “PAN-AM”,
They conjured a curious plan…
An old loco
With it’s first logo,
Put it back in service and it RAN!
Mostly for local yard work,
Natives thimk it a perk…
With the expected GP-7 or 9 quirks!
Spends time in between rail yards–
East Deerfield, Portland, onwards…
Don’t grow up on trees,
And for a while they won’t break down from rust!
