Thread Name: Train Songs
Subject: RE: BS: Train Songs
Dave Goulder's a great song writer, and the best known of his songs is JANUARY MAN, in the DT. When he was a young man back in England he worked on the footplate.

I think the record karen k was trying to remember the name of might be "The man who put the engine in the chip shop" (Fellside Records FEO65 - vinyl only I suspect, or it might be Stone, Steam and Starlings, which is on CD. The thing about his trains is they aren't big epic American trains, they're rattly English ones.

Here's a site with lots of stuff about railway records, including Dave Goulder's "man who put the engine in the chip shop"
