Sacramento Northern

Train conductor says
Last stop 64
Erie Lackawanna
Stops at Newton no more

At the same time
Many miles away
Sacramento Northern
Had its last day

As sad as that seemed
Now the tracks are paved
For bikers and hikers
The old lines were saved

I always wonder
What it was like
From those old cars
While on my bike

Station to station
Chicago to New York
Our little town
The line headed north

Station to station
Beauty in between
Sacramento to Oakland
A railroad in my dreams
