Opening shots of rail tracks and a train
soon pan out skywards to an overhead bridge on which Jeff, Vic,
Paul and Lem stand with outstretched arms, creating an impressive
tomfoolery then takes over as the boys frolic in and on top of
the train, and also link arms in a silly high-kick routine on
the bridge. The train also passes a group of girl fans who are
holding a placard with the names of the members.
A special flyer
was distributed to promote the video.
I like this video because the music is cool and
there is no bloody H&S TheSteamDriver
I like the bit when they dance on the locomotive
and that engine reminds me of another engine I know; her name
is ISABEL, she runs at the cambrian railway oswerstry. 4468446844684468
Should have been a bigger hit than it was. Thanks!
Yes, I second that comment. lordtornsocks
A fantastic video and song!!!
Many train songs are a bunch of annoying American country-style
music, while this video is a 1970s British rock song about
trains. Therefore, it has a good beat and style to it without
being lame or annoying. I first heard this song on youtube.
I was reading the Isle of Wight Steam Railway site in September
of 2008, and I read about the tank engine named "Invincible".
There was a link posted on the page to the original Iron
Horse music video featuring this locomotive. Then, that
video inspired me to make my own. I had (and still have)
the computer game called "Rail Simulator" by EA
and Kuju. In July of 2008, I bought the Isle of Wight add-on
for it which included Invincible the tank engine in the
1972 music video of Iron Horse.
So in December of 2008, I got a Christie CD for Christmas
with Iron Horse on it. I then
made my own music video of Iron Horse.
I wanted to make it very identical to the original music
video from 1972 with the same locomotive and the same route.
I like trains because they're big, loud, thrilling, historical,
and extreme. I declare Iron Horse
by Christie to be the "Official Steam Train Anthem".
I believe many train lovers will love this song and want
to make their own videos with it because it has a very good
rhythm, memorable lyrics, and describes steam trains very
well in music form. I say that Iron
Horse by Christie is the best railroad song I have
ever heard. driverman2008
Iron Horse is now the official
train song for train enthusiasts in the US! Check out several
youtube videos made by them, all featuring the song as the
backing track. - webmaster

Memories from the beginning of the 70's as I
was studying. ahutila
This is wonderful, it must have been around 1972.
I don't ever recall hearing this song before,
but like both the song and video. It's great that some people
had the foresight to preserve a few of those steam locomotives
on both sides of the Atlantic. Abitibidoug

Awesome song! Look at Invincible (the tank engine
or "Iron Horse") roll down the line!:) Driverman2008
We used to play this at my mate's house in 1973,
still sounds as good today. newall7
Man, this is such an awesome train song. The
train songs in America are mainly a bunch of Southern "Red
Neck" country crap. British rock songs about trains (like
this one) are SO much better than the American country songs about
HEY,BIG SONG ... ANSENAMUNN

I'd never heard this one until I found it on
here. Here in the US we just got Yellow
River. I love this song. It's great and the video is neat
with the steam engine and all. The guy with the square pockets
on his pants, I remember people dressing like that. The good old
days .. :) cherylharrell1961
