On the far end of the line,

One industry in decline…

A boxcar or two

Occasionally in view,

Abandonment would come in time.

Add a scrap yard or engine house,

Building traffic so sparse….

A former industry

Came to me…

with varied traffic–not the worst!

Near Worcester, power research,

Resulted in a railside perch…

Sometimes it spouted

Exhaust pouring out,

I’d notice while driving to church.

Thinking of the engine shed,

Modified to unload instead…

Woodchips and coal

For a research goal,

Separated scrap out can go!

The one spur only two cars,

would be unloaded there…

At various spurs

Storage occurs,

Saving a railroad line is ours!

Jonathan Caswell

The industry and events in this work are fictional…except on the author’s N scale model railroad.

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?.
