  • April 17, 2009 Very Nicely Written

    My middle school band played this song last year and it was amazing. I played the trumpet solos and loved the whole piece. if you're choosing between this and another piece, pick this one!

  • January 08, 2009 Energetic with Many Encores

    This piece is energetic and exciting! Its sound effects are some of the best I've heard. Though the solos were easy, they were perfectly timed and outstanding. It is easiest in 144, but I would recommend keeping it at 180. Substitute some of the french horn for a soprano...

    or alto saxophone, if you can. Make sure there is a good snare drummer otherwise the piece will become off beat and, like a train, will crash. All in all, great piece for your intermediate level bands

  • May 15, 2008 Fun and Energetic

    This song sounds so amazing and it is so much fun to play! My school band is playing it this year and I never get tired of it. It is my favorite band song. I also love how much it actually sounds like a train! It is so cool. It...

    is a very fun, energetic, and upbeat song. It's the greatest band song I've ever played!
