A train is coming, WHOO WHOO !

Here comes a train!

The wheels roll along the track.

CLICKETY CLACK CLICKETY CLACK

The conductor pulls the horn.

TOOT TOOT !

 


 

The engineer’s cab moves fast.

WHOO WHOO !

It pulls all the other railroad cars along.

This locomotive is strong!

CHOO CHOO !

 


 

In the front, three bright lights shine the way.

Even if it’s night or day.

TOOT TOOT !

 


 

Behind the engine is three passenger cars.

Those people will travel far.

CHOO CHOO sounds the train’s horn!

 


 

Here comes some, flat, piggy back cars.

On top of these is truck trailers.

Anything could be inside.

Milk, eggs and cheese?

Do you think they carry these?

 


 

In winter-time, when the snow falls, Santa trains arrive!

CLICKETY CLACK CLICKETY CLACK, WHOO WHOO !

AND, DING DING DING DING !

Here it comes! This engine is yellow and black.

Two passenger cars follow behind.

A red caboose follows last.

Santa Clause waves as ONE TWO THREE FOUR trains go past.

That train is not very long.

It transports people at Christmas time!

See you next year Santa!

 


 

A high speed diesel train travels through now.

It pulls semi-trailers on piggy-back cars.

Round, black, tank cars full of sticky oil follow along too.

CHOO CHOO !

Summer-time in the desert is dry and dusty.

You may see a tiny, brown, mouse scurry around a cactus.

As a coyote hunts nearby.

WHOO WHOO !

 


 

One train has stopped for the night.

The conductor is tired!

Once in bed, he rests his head on a pillow.

His sleepy eyes close.

Goodnight moon he say’s.
