Veterans’ Association of the  Chicago & Northwestern Railway
Organized December 9, 1924
Fading away like stars in the morning, Losing their light in the glorious sun. So do we pass from this earth and its toiling, Ever remembered by what we have done.
Life is like a mountain railroad, With an engineer that’s brave; We must make the run successful, From the cradle to grave; Watch the curves, the hills, the tunnels; Never falter, never quail; Keep your hand upon the throttle, And your eyes upon the rail. With the hearty, joyous plaudit, Weary pilgrim, welcome home!
