All Aboard! This train-themed playlist in honor of National Train Day on May 12th is about to depart. Its various cars are packed with romance, music, drama, animation, and, of course, coal. So sit back, relax, make sure your carry-on items are neatly stowed in the designated baggage areas, and enjoy this short-filled ride. Choo-choo!
