Spike-by-spike track moves forward,
Tie-by-tie covering land…
Commerce miniature shaping progress,
Focussed on each task at hand.
N scale track fits in places
Thought impossible before…
Problem-solving special cases
Suddenly end a war.
Challenges are remeasured,
Answers spring up after years…
Of discouraged gandy dancers
Saying, “Should we put track here?”
Certain tracks convoluted,
Are snaked out of many knots…
A spaghetti layout substituted
With a track plan having open spots!
Nail or gluing down by spot tack,
Ensures things won’t hit the floor…
As designers fix a problem
Cracks in bench work–nothing more!
Decided to go for a turntable,
Switching ends is lots of fun…
Plus the matter of train couplers
Certain engines not in front.
Up- or downstream is the question,
When portraying waterfalls…
It’s confused with flexible planning–
Which end up when nature calls?
Fictional, yet firmly planted
In the villages near home…
‘Though they never had a railroad
They’ll be blessed by boiler foam.
N scale progress sure and steady
After years of certain doubt…
Soon we hope it will be ready
For this railroad’s “coming out”!!!
