Thread Name: Train Songs
Subject: RE: Train Songs
My great-great grandfather was William H Brinkworth, born Shoreditch, east London 1835,son of a musician. In the 1860s-70s he led the orchestra at the Britannia theatre in Hoxton (home to the British Music Hall genre)and was also musical director for a string of Broadway shows, regularly commuting the Atlantic by steamboat.

He wrote a song called "The Young man on the railway." Can any one come up with the full lyrics or music?
