The Twelve Days of Christmas, special edition
Author: DNRY122

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:

An Alco RSD-5

And cutting to the end:

Twelve Ten-wheelers
Eleven covered hoppers
Ten Daylight Northerns
Nine UP Big Boys
Eight SD-7s
Seven Baldwin switchers
Six full-length dome cars
Five PE Blimps
Four Birney cars
Three Cab-aheads
Two Skokie Swifts
And an Alco RSD-5
(many of us would accompany this song with a "Mighty Wurlitzer" theatre organ)

Folks "back east" may substitute "GG-1s" for "PE Blimps"

And be sure to wish your Ham Radio operator friends:

"Merry crystals and happy new gear"

For an amazing ride "on" a Wulitzer, visit the Organ Stop Pizza in Mesa, AZ. I happen to be listening to a CD of that fantastic organ right now.
