This one was a great favourite here in Darwin performed by Tony Suttor and Peter Bate.

MOSS VALE TRAIN
(A.Scott/T.Morton)

Well, I'm standing on Campbelltown station
Waitin' for the Moss Vale train
When a bloke comes out with a microphone
To say it's been cancelled again
Well, he says it's not his problem
That we canít get our ride
The train pulled in to Minto
And committed suicide

Well, he says he's ordered buses
To take us on our way
And he thinks we should be grateful
That's what I heard him say.
So we're lurching down the freeway
Watching videos
I hope we get to Moss Vale
Before the shops all close

There's a bloke on the seat here beside me
Heís going for a job interview
By the time we get to Picton
His chances of employment are through
And my wife waits for me in Bowral
She'll be going off her brain
Staring down the railway track
And there wonít be any train

So if you're standing on Campbelltown station
Waiting for the Two-Thirty-One,
And a clown comes out with a microphone
To tell you the train won't run

Spoken:
You tell him it is HIS problem
It's a problem for ALL of us,
Tell him you want the train back
You don't want his stupid bus

Or you'll be lurching down the freeway
Hoping to get there soon
The money they spent on the freeway
Would build a railway to the moon

Alan Scott used Tex Morton's tune for 'Freight Train Yodel'.
