Hear the Train Blow

Here comes old 'clunker' again. Rattling over the landscape on the diagonal of each square mile, SHe hauls shipping containers; Maersk Sealand, CMA CGM, tex, cronos, China Shipping, Hamburg Sud, Magellan. I'm reminded of Patsy Adam-Smith's book 'Hear the Train Blow' except hers was a steam train in a different era of industrial revolution. The north east corner of Farm3618 lies right beside the railway crossing so trains have been a part of life here since 1887 when the line first opened.
