Another selection from my "Steam Locomotive Songbook," this ballad was meant to musically describe the official state steam locomotive of Michigan, the Pere Marquette #1225, which is owned and operated by the Steam Railroading Institute in Owosso, MI. Most people should recognize this easily, as it "starred" as the titular train in the 2004 animated movie "The Polar Express," starring Tom Hanks. And seeing that the #1225 is the "real-life" version of said Christmas train, that runs holiday-themed excursions based upon the original Chris Van Allsburg story, I'd thought it is appropriate to give it a Christmas theme. 
Again, much of this is my own work, although it also "recycles" material from the official Michigan State University Alma Mater, "MSU Shadows", and the traditional German Hymn turned official Michigan State Song "O Tannebaum/Michigan my Michigan." With all that being said, I also do not own the Pere Marquette railroad.
