It was my Fathers Day present from my kid's .I have had time to play it all, yes 200 tracks ! I'm "gobsmacked" if you like old country and western train song's folk songs, skiffle and a bit of doo-woop as well .Shame it went off the track with a couple of songs which as nothing to do with railroads , muletrain a bit of a "donkey" and big iron which is a song about a gunfighter , otherwise ride this train and enjoy ! It's ok for Dad's and Grandad's like myself who loves trains and train songs .
Note - used this album on a folk retro show which I presented ,and got a lot of interesting feedback about this album . { Good feedback on its contents }

Sometimes, there can be good reasoms for having alternative versions of the same song in a compilation. Unfortunately, here it appears just sloppy. I'll concede that there can be different songs with the same title (here there are two different songs on CD 6, both titled Big train) but that's OK.

There are three versions of This train (Johnny Duncan, Hank Thompson, Reverened Ballenger), three versions of Wreck of the old '97 (Hank Snow, Lonnie Donegan, Johnny Cash) and two versions of many other songs including Wabash cannonball, which also appears a third time with different lyrics as Jukebox cannonball. Furthermore, there are two recordings by the same artist of Tennessee ghost train. Jimmy Dale's 1957 version sounds a little better than his 1953 version.

Dates and (in some cases) chart positions are given without any explanation. The chart positions are misleading. I know that some relate to the British pop charts and some to the American country charts. Others may relate to the Americann pop or R+B charts. Who knows?

Another problem is that some songs just don't belong here. Yonder comes a sucker (Jim Reeves) mentions railroad in a chorus line, but cannot seriously be classed as a train song. Big iron (Marty Robbins) has no connection whatsoever with trains or railroads that I can find. Mule train (two versions) is not a railroad song, as the mules themselves follow each other in line.

I don't mind Jukebox cannonball, which although derived from a train song, has no train references except the cannonball, which is reduced to a metaphor. I also don't mind If I were a train (Teresa Brewer), which is also metaphorical but doesn't pretend to be anything else.

This has to be the bargain of the year! A 10 cd set, with each cd containing 20 songs.There is everything here from skiffle and folk to country music and instrumentals. A thoroughly enjoyable collection which contains such classics as "Freight Train" and "Last train to San Fernando". Brilliant! *****

I just can't believe the reviewer who is complaining about there being 2 or 3 different versions of some of the songs, spread over the 200 tracks you get for less than 6p each. They are classic songs sung by some of the greatest C&W and folk artists of their time, so it is absolutely great to hear how different singers interpreted such songs in different ways. Any classic song, especially those derived from traditional ballads, lends itself to different approaches. How great to be able to compare Don Gibson's and Hank Snow's versions of 'I'm Movin' On', likewise with other timeless classics here. Incredible value for money!
