It is track 4 on their highly successful 1977 album Out of the Blue. In 1980 the track became the B-side to the hit single "Don't Walk Away".
The song opens with a steam train and horn sound effect, then switching into a small bridge with the violin and the moog, then switching to an upbeat rock song, with the opening verse being reminiscent of The Beach Boys track "Heroes and Villains". Mik Kaminski features on violin, one of only three songs he performed on Out of the Blue and the song also features a Latin mariachi style brass section.
"Listen out for the train noises first, also some Spanish style trumpets. Big finish with much phasing on the drums." - Bev Bevan (1977 - Japanese Out of the Blue LP liner notes)
In 1980 after the release of the UK box set Four Light Years the song was intended to be the lead off track on a proposed Across the Border EP which also included "Don't Bring Me Down", "Telephone Line" and "Mr Blue Sky". For reasons unknown the EP was withdrawn and the intended EP artwork which matched the parent box set was used as the slip cover for their 1982 double A-side single "Here is the News/Ticket to the Moon" instead. The EP version of the song made its debut on the 1997 compilation album Light Years.
