A limerick about trains

More specifically, about train drivers. I work on a heritage steam railway in Cumbria and have buckets of fun every day, mainly because it’s a beautiful place and the people are lovely. Bank holiday weekend was particularly enjoyable thanks to a doube-header train each day. For those of you not up to scratch on your train lingo, that’s a train pulled by two engines. Like this:

In trying to get that picture, however, the drivers decided to pose for me and my first shot ended up like this:

Which inspired a little limerick. This is for the drivers.

There once were two men who drove steam
Who made a remarkable team.
The green liked to pose
While blue always chose
To shine like the moon on full beam.
