The Fillmore and Western Railway

A trip to Santa Paula takes hours
(it's ten miles away)
but I'm glad it's there.
I've only ridden it to the
Island of Sodor with a
two year old
and a baby
but it took me farther than that.

It took me to a land where
travel was elegant and genteel
with beautiful wooden windows
looking out to graffiti
and metal shipping containers.

The iron detailing matters
on the seats
and the lights glow
and the world goes by at a leisurely
