Tag Archives: learning to make it like everyone else!


I hear it every year.

From “little girls” like my dear…

They say “Boo-Hoo”

With no ChooChoo,

Just dollies every year!

Manufacturers painted some pink,

Appealing to girls I think…

Expensive to own

Few are taken home,

But collectors have their fun.

Lady engine drivers

Are a group diverse…

Just like the guys

With responsible eyes,

Are railroad hardship survivors!

Model trains a few

Women model too…

Not on catwalks,

But her engine talks,

She built her own live steam choo-choo!
