Subject: Train songs about Utah's Heber Creeper?

Has anyone ever heard any songs about what was supposed to be the slowest train in the nation? They featured it on a PBS program, Trains of the American West, tonight, and it just seems there ought to be some songs. It is in Utah and has been featured in quite a few tv productions according to their website: please click.

For those not familiar with the name, Heber, it is pronounced with a "long e" as in Hee - burr. The old joke about it going to slow was that a young couple could get married on it, when they boarded it and by the time they reached the other end, they would have had their first child!

Thanks,

kat

If there aren't any extant, this should be a song challenge item.

If anyone is inclined to write a song about the Heber Creeper, you could borrow some of the "slow train" jokes from these threads:
