E & M NUMBER 5

The Edgmoor  and Manetta  Railroad,

Has quite a story told…

Last in Steam–

A seventies dream–

A trestle break caused it to fold!

Old number five,

Was lovingly kept alive…

Shoving one way

In tiny display,

The rail fan press thrived!

Blankets  from the Lando Mill,

South Carolina, drilled…

Two boxcars

Maximum as far

As getting up the hill!

Coal and chemicals came,

In to manufacture the same…

Lasted for years–

The mill still clears

Blankets by truck–what a shame!
