Nevada Northern Freight #81
. . . metered like the seasons,
Number 81 worked the hundred-fifty miles of its domain--
benevolent ambassador of community in a vast and lonely land.
Gripping anticipation upon hearing,
throaty excitement to see pass,
the orchestrated symphony of steel precision
hard to hold
