MULTIPLE TIME PERIODS

MULTIPLE TIME PERIODS

During his train buying spree,

He split into eras, two or three…

Steam, diesel-electric,

Both selected

Not just for tourism–you’ll see!

With all the wonder transpired,

His layout hasn’t been wired…

With this good stuff

Someone called his bluff,

Hot coals underneath him were fired.

Abrasives, bread and coal,

Join plastics, soda , on the roll…

Water treatment too

And textiles run through,

To keep his N scale trains full.

Alternative energy

From woodchips, fly ash, groceries…

Vie with tourist trains

For space on the main,

But the branch line is pure fantasy!
