TUNE Paul Henry Dallaire - Death of the New York Central
This song is about a train which ran the tracks between Ottawa Canada and Messena New York U.S.A. with many whistle stops in-between including Russell ON. mentioned in the song.
It stopped it's operation in the sixties. The info in the song was given to me by Canadian singer named Orval prophet (Canadian Plowboy and known also by Johnny Six) His better song was (Mademoiselle) now deceased. The names are true as he knew the charcters personally cause he lived near the track in Edwards ON.
