Cute. Very British. Thats was the band that got angry at "Winchester Cathedral" because it didnt do anything to stop the lead singer's "baby" from "leaving town"... as I recall from the Sixties. :) There is atleast one German pop song about trains. https://youtu.be/kv8_...

Brits make great train music without singing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wX9muArmeFg Recorded live at the BBC. Clapton steals the show with his harmonica, but Baker is awfully busy with his brushes to set the mood. . Not "the Brits", but one British band (who are displaying their dee...

Must be "incomplete data". Why some states are blank. Interesting. Some random observations. There is a big chunk of blue in the north of Arizona, and in northwest New Mexico. And that region coincides with the borders of the Navajo Reservation (as big as Pennsylvania), and the smaller res...

Well didnt they go through a phase of making railroad tracks out of wood? With only an iron strip across the top where the wheels hit? Sherman's army marching through Georgia would tear up the railroads, and stick the strips into fire, bend them, and hang them from trees. The resulting tree decorati...

Still an engineering marvel, nevertheless. I would say the transition from stagecoach to railway was more dramatic than the transition from stagecoach to motor vehicle because of the existence of railways when motor vehicles began to supplant the horse and buggy. https://www.digitalhistory.uh.edu/d...
