The Alaska Railroad
By: Anne Combs

When you see the trains go by
Stop at the boarding gate
The blue and yellow flashes on
For the Alaska state

The 3015 train zooms on by
The birds all fly away
A 112-car train passes by
All the very same day

There was one time that I rode one
A big Alaska train
The view was very beautiful
I'm glad it did not rain

But you know what would be so cool
I really would admit
To have a railroad on my street
My mom would have a fit

Big, big trains with big, big, wheels
Rusty from the rain
But nothing can or ever beat
The smooth Alaska train
