in’t no bigger thing - ever seen crossing the land
A rolling power plant - in the engineer’s hands
Smoke and steam from a monster machine
The 1017’s just a dream
That fusion of steam and steel
Wish she was still real
Wish that engine was still real

She weighed in at - a mere million plus pounds
Barreling down the track - on her appointed rounds
Doctors ands lawyers and teachers and me
Would gladly trade places for free
With the engineer
On Engine 1017
On Engine 1017

Parallel lines of steel - meet at infinity
Those rails will get you there - most definitely
Heavy hauling cross mountain and plain
Nothing can stop her
Not sleet, snow nor rain
On any terrain
Save me the right hand seat
On Engine 1017

They’ve been writing, rehearsing, and gigging regularly in the Upper Delaware Valley, The Catskills, Eastern PA, and The Hamptons, NY. Folks enjoy their eclectic style and freedom to explore a relationship to music without boundaries. ... more
