Most well-known maybe?
The text does describe the romance of former train travel very well, the song itself is a bit too romantic for me
As a kid I had the chance to ride a train like that in March 1979, the Canadian Pacific from Calgary to Vancouver. I don't think I'd have minded if my parents had booked the entire trip from Montréal (instead we flew to Calgary so I saw the snow-covered prairies from high up; and since I could spend almost the entire flight with the pilots I wasn't too disappointed
I suppose American trains are also beginning to look more like (supposedly) luxurious cattle transports that are all about taking the payload from one point to another as fast as possible?
