Competition 41: Railway Lines

John Betjeman may lord it over the lost land of rural all too impermanent ways, but here is your chance to indulge in steamy nostalgia, or anti-nostalgia, or comment on the pleasures and pains of modern diesel-drawn rail travel in your own or anyone else’s style, past or present, in up to 16 lines not later than 20th May.


Donkey and foal. Steel-engraved endpiece 1868.                                            

You'll have to wait till June, poor mokes,
If you're expecting further jokes.
