One of the greatest poems written in and of this steamy locomotive ambience and romance, is " El Tren Expresso " by the great Spanish poet, Ramon de Campoamor, on you tube. Nicely done.

Michael, I tried finding an English version of the poem, but no luck. Its a very long poem divided into 3 " cantos" or poetic songs, like some of the ancient Greek literature. The 3 Spanish recited versions on " you tube" are beautiful, but that won't help. Sorry.
