PUFFING BILLY RAILWAY (POEM), HERITAGE RAILWAY IN DANDENONG RANGES, VICTORIA

This poem is dedicated to my grand children and other children.

PUFFING BILLY RAILWAY

 

Our first ride on Billy, a puffing steam train;

Sit on the ledge of open-sided carriage, no fain.

Flag signal, cord pull, train puffs and whistle;

Woo-woo, the engine blows smoke, we chuckle.

Strange sound in the air, train pulls into forest;

Flashes: ferns, bush, valleys, scenes with interest.

Passes Bridge and stations, and end in a pretty park;

The Heritage Ride is a spark and cherished landmark.

PS I am unable to insert my video of the moving Puffing Billy Steam Railway in this posting.

    The Puffing Billy has been a great attraction in Victoria for many years, and is always a pleasure to ride, especially for Children.
    Lovely post.
