Found this interesting link while looking for a good tab of "City of New Orleans" so I can learn to play it on the guitar.

That list is missing my favorite by ZZ Top. I'm not going to list it since I'm waiting to use it in a photo remark, but if you know it, then you are a true ZZ Top fan...

Another one they were missing on the list (or I just didn't see it) was "A Man and a Train" by Marty Robbins. If you've seen Emperor of the North, you'll know this song as it's the one from the opening credits of the movie.

Another good train song is "Pan American" by Hank Williams Sr. I'm pretty sure its the southland's response to "Wabash Cannonball"

If you didnt find one yet heres really good chords for "City of New Orleans":

I personally prefer "Train, Train" by Blackfoot. Who could ever forget Cub Coda blowing for the crossing on the Harmonica

Resurrected this thread from the dead.
Quite the eclectic variety of music.
Heres a couple songs I didn't see that are on a compilation disc I burned for road trips. Looks like I'm gonna have to do volume 2.

She caught the Katy -Blues Bros. version.
Train of Consequences - Megadeth
A passage to Bangkok - Rush
Train in Vain- The Clash

I can't believe no one mentioned Roger Millers "King of the Road"
