Transitions Project: Poetry by Clifton Green Primary School (5)

Our last collaborative piece of poetry from Clifton Green Primary School pays tribute to York’s railway station.

My fabulous station, what an amazing site!
Trains from all over Britain,

Travelling through,
Day and night.

In 1839 the first attempt was made –
This didn’t even last one decade!
It was 1841 as I can recall,
When it was rebuilt inside my own city walls.

In 1877,
My station was declared,
The biggest in the world,
No other compared!
