Familiar with these railroad lines,
Central New York State on time…
Of harvested fruit,
Just up my interest line!
One brand using rail there is MOTT’S,
Applesauce, canned fruit, lots…
The railroad’s busy,
Pulling loads from loading spots.
My friends, Jim and Cornelia Mead,
Who on our Honeymoon guaranteed…
A ride on their train
A kind gesture of them,
I helped Tioga Central* succeed!
Jim Mead and Ontario Lines,
There railroad experience finds…
And Number Fourteen
Was obtained through them,
For “our” Museum on the main line!
*See “NUMBER FOURTEEN’S FANCY DRES”, posted July 3rd.
The Tioga Central Railroad ran excursion trains and later freight trains out of Owego, New York, in conjunction with the nearby Tioga Transportation Museum.
