Hi Manfred,
It appears to be Railroad Line by the Gibson Brothers.
See http://www.dixie-chicks.com/rockzilla/cooper18.html
Where it explains:
Brother Leigh wrote and sings "Railroad Line," a song about a deserted railroad/lumber town near the Gibson's hometown of Ellenburg Depot, New York, just below the Canadian border. Leigh's vocal is mournfully dramatic and quite potent. The key is dropped down the scale a bit, befitting the poignant subject matter. The harmonies are also in a lower register, with more emphasis on the heart-tug: "You might think it's long ago / But I can still see the black smoke roll / Back before 1959 / Back before they tore out the railroad line."


All the best,
David Leech,
Delta, Canada
