    Can't believe I forgot this ..... Locomotive Breath (for all you youngsters out there) it's from Aqualung by Jethro Tull.

    Trains and boats and planes... can't remember who by
    Waiting for a train, Elvis, Merle haggard,,Hank snow, Jimmy Rogers
    The streamline cannonball, Hank snow
    Pan American. Seldom scene.

    Can't think of an American artist who hasn't done a train song, it is part of U.S. folk lore

    Ah, the sublime Curtis Mayfield - brilliant.
    Then again, there's always this reasonable enough cover version by an obscure guitar guy and some warbling singer....;)


    Oh, and I just remembered these....(y)






    PS. Eva Cassidy also did a fantastic version of Sandy Denny's "Who Knows Where the Time Goes", but it doesn't fit in with the theme here - bit of a shame that.
    PPS. I did think about "Train in Vain" by The Clash, but....:whistle:....it's got nuthin' to do with trains or railways.

    Good one from The Boss there Del. I'd forgotten that one.

    Wouldn't call myself a Rod Stewart "fan" but I don't mind some of his stuff.

    I try to be objective with my music and if I find myself liking something I won't dismiss it just because it's by someone I don't usually like (if that makes sense :confused: ). Hence the presence of a couple of Elton John songs on my iPod. I even have a Manly Barrilow CD knocking around somewhere :eek:.

    Following is just my opinion of course;
    Rodders was brilliant up until 1975's "Atlantic Crossing", which despite two or three classics was a bit ho-hum. Then the alarm bells really started ringing with 1976's "A Night On The Town".
    After that it was more like A Night On The (Disco) Tiles, apart from occasional bursts of good stuff like "Downtown Train".
    The 2000's saw him essentially singing for my old Maiden Aunties and I gave up on him.
    He then surprised the life out of me with 2013's "Time" which rocketed him right back to the glory days of the early 1970's.
    His two subsequent albums, "Another Country" and "Blood Red Roses" have been brilliant as well.
    Give them a try - it'll be well worth it.

    Some of his early stuff with The Faces was excellent also.

    I agree with you about that big-band Bublé-esque "American Songbook" phase he went through that seemed to be aimed at the blue rinse brigade - complete bollox. His album of Motown soul covers was OK (all in my very humble opinion of course). Not heard his more recent output. Might have to give it a listen.

    Yeah well, I probably should've made clear I was including his music with the Faces as well.
    Remember "In A Broken Dream", when he was guest vocalist with Python Lee Jackson? Sorry it's not a Train song.


    Funnily enough, I've been going through my (Steve Marriott) Small Faces and Humble Pie collection trying to find a relevant song for this thread, but come up with a blank so far.
