“THE OLD SWITCHEROO”

The good old switcheroo,

A thing that horse thieves may do…

But this is mental–

Take a “New York Central”

Switch the shell for “New Haven” to view!

Knuckle couplers are on this chassis,

Can’t think of much more classy…

My New England road

Another RS-3* is owed,

This orange-and-black now has he?

Another RS-3*…a road switcher locomotive model produced by the American Locomotive Company up until the early 1960’s.

CUTTING DOWN THE PILES

CUTTING DOWN THE PILES

Time to cut down the collection

And take up less room on inspection…

Eight containers

Of rolling stock remainders,

With more needing commercial connections!

I have a “knuckle coupler set”

Which I’ll keep with no regret…

The “Rapido” couplers

Get suitably shuttled,

Along to another ones net!
