Hey people and Starlight fans!

Feel free to submit all your stuff about Starlight Express! I would be please to share all of it with you! :)
During the 90s, the old London show was making a transition into the revamp version that featured no CB or Belle and included "Crazy". However, before the final version came about, there were some experimentation. The original show had a number known as "Hitching and Switching" where the racers chose their partners. Now, the Broadway and Bochum merely removed this number altogether, but the changing London show attempted to retain the "carriage selection" scene. This led to the infamous "Union Square Dance." It was sung by Control, but apparently the cast refused to do it after a few showings. This is the only known photo of the deleted song:…

Unfortunately, I have not found my original source for the lyrics, but the words remain as when I first saw them (including the description of the music). If you were that person who put this together, thanks a lot.

Control, Control
This is turning into a real grudge match
Take a chill pill everyone
We're gonna settle this on the track
So let's be friendly, let's have fun
And let's get hitched

(imagine sad Country and Western Barn Dance)

Every engine choose a track
Pick up the loops and climb on the back
Train now standing on platform nine
Get off the platform back on the line

All line up and promenade
Let's have a look at the trains we've made
Hey, Electra chose the freezer
Now Espresso best not eat, he got a
Buffy, got her flashly
Bobo's making smoke with Ashley

Dinah's got her Greaseball lined up
Come on Pearl, make your mind up
All along we won't get far
Take your wagons to the start

Hurry up Rusty, get joined on
(Whistle) Too late, train time gone

[link] There used to a company called McCoy Manufacturing which produced toy trains. "Poppa McCoy" is aptly named. ;)

Alright, this is irrelevant to anyone studying sign language outside of the US, but I thought it was a neat little thing.

This is the ASL sign for "I love you" -- [link]

This is the ASL sign for the verb "whistle" -- [link]

Well, folks, I've been on vacation in Texas, and I flew back in yesterday. While I was out there, we were heading to Will's Point to visit family, and we passed through Terrell. Along the way, there is actually a skate shop with a giant quad rollerskate in the front--which caught my attention since I had to get my skates online, so it was interesting to see a store with "WE SELL SKATES" on the outside wall. Right behind the shop is a line of railroad tracks. If that's not geeky enough, that's actually a freight line for the Union Pacific! :love: Unfortunately, I didn't get a photo, but it's now on my to-do list. ^___^

At one point we were actually driving parallel to a UP train, and I noticed that we were pulling ahead of the engine. My response? "Take that, Greaseball!" :D
