Here's a link to a little music video I did of the Orange Blossom Special on YT. I took a good bit of artistic license with it but real footage of the OBS is darn hard to find. The song is sung by Jackson Cash, whom I consider to be the best Johnny Cash tribute artist out there today. He gave me permission to use his recording.

Ain't it a shame that todays RR's do not promote new power or services this way anymore. Them's were the days. Ben
