Still not a patch on the original. Was lucky enough to ride The City Of New Orleans from Memphis to Chicago a couple of years ago. Never forget it.

 

Run out of likes for tonight mate or I would have put one to this. Nice one.

And this reminds me of working nightshift at Ravenscraig after New Year in 82 . 8.00 at night till 10.00 in the morning , 14 hours , 5 days for the princely sum of about £80 a week for an apprentice :lol: . And when I got off nightshift and couldn't sleep , this was always on the radio

Same story, kind of. I had just finished my apprenticeship, first job as a tradesman - 1982, and I was making £185 a week. It was unreal going from £70 a week as an apprentice to £185 and that song along with this one always sticks in my mind.

Aye , i think they were just down the road , another manky place to work in . I remember seeing how black the dayshift were and thinking fuck that , 20 minutes later we were all the same colour :lol: . 

It wasnt a well known song . When I went back on days it was always on the radio through the night when I was trying to sleep. One of the better ones of that time .
