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
