    Man, so many good songs incorporating trains in the theme! I really had to think hard to find something not already mentioned but I came up with one not yet posted (I think).
    One of my favorite singer/songwriters and one helluva guitar player - Patty Larkin.
    The train in this song is actually a metaphor.

    I’m not going to be able to read every post, so I’m probably repeating somebody...

    Silvertrain (Rolling Stones)
    All Down the Line (Stones)
    Move Me On Down The Line (ZZ Top)
    People Get Ready (Curtis Mayfield)
    Mystery Train (too many to list)
    Love in Vain (Robert Johnson/Stones)

    Presumably it’s Train.
