Yep, this is the train in the song. "The Wabash Railroad served the Heartland of America, operating on both sides of the Mississippi River, handling traffic as both an Eastern and Western carrier. It formed a major route between Buffalo and Kansas City, and a North-South line between Chicago and St. Louis."
