In which you ran, reminded me of this funky old tune...

(4+ min long, and the vocals don't start until 0:40)

Around the time it came out (on Zevon's "Excitable Boy" -- same album as "Werewolves of London"), I had a summer job on a bridge inspection crew, working on the Northeast Corridor railroad. In a switching yard, train cars move slowly, mostly on gravity alone; on the Northeast Corridor the fastest run 100+ (mi/hr).

Yep the park used to be a switch yard. But there's just a section of track about 100 feet long thats left.

I am now gonna listen to that song every day now, thanks (youtube is gonna recommend it since I've watched it).
