All aboard!

Forest Park Railroad, Fort Worth
All aboard
You ought to hear this bell
I can hear that whistle  blow
Even the wheels have Lone Stars
About a four mile trip for all us kids
Crossing the Trinity River
Perfect ride for all us kids
Where's the caboose? I want to ride in the caboose!

I rode the train while Susan was napping after our trip to the Botanical gardens..   Clickety-clack, ding, ding, ding, whoo-oooh! Best $2.50 I've spent in ages.
