MODELING MEMORIES

His memories of New England various,

Were by and large vicarious…

Mostly pictures he saw

with interest and awe,

His chances of a visit–hilarious!

Point of fact he was too young,

Couldn’t drive himself even some…

The eight-hour ride

Once a summer left wide,

Window for relevant magazines to come!

Still his interest grew,

Past the time when he knew…

This paint scheme was gone,

these ALCOs moved on.

But the history he wanted to view.

Found an N scale engine thus,

Painted just like this—a plus–

To re-enact

Historical fact,

Without too much fuss!

N SCALE ALCO BONANZA!

N SCALE ALCO BONANZA!

He spent on an extravaganza,

An n scale ALCO bonanza…

Locomotives galore

Put in a drawer,

For when his layout expands-ah!

He got them all through E-bay,

But now he must go away…

From tempting things,

Cash register rings,

He’s got rent and bills to pay!  🙂
