“MAKING PROGRESS”

MAKING PROGRESS

(on his N scale  model train layout)

Determined to start building,

He spiked down the mirrored yard…

It needed measures precisely

Just sticking to it–not hard!

Unhooked another rail section,

It had to be re=aligned…

He’ll have to spike or glue it down–

The home engineers won’t mind.

He’s found a place for the grist mill,

With turning waterwheel…

It may seem a little hokey

But it has that tourist appeal.

The team track at Whitinsville Machine Works

Doesn’t seem very long…

Three-to-four cars is the most it’ll take

but we’ll have to get along!
