John Standring from England makes his NBT dubut on this CD with 'Listen To The Boxcars'. John is a member of the Wirral Musicians Project. Peter Allen is also from England and performs a Daniel Hicks and Jeremy Sloane composition entitled 'Does This Train Go To Silvertown'. Mark Kelf and the Valley Boys hail from England and their rendition of 'The Crossing' gives a rockabilly flavor to the CD. Kelf co-wrote this song with Richard Howard. Michael Stuart Jones returns to the train series with a song entitled 'Dream Come True' which is a doo-wop number thus adding yet another genre to the musical mix.
