"Choo Choo Train Ride" by Hans Schindler's Orchestra, on a Mercury 78, dubbed 
from an early 30s Telefunken titled "Bahnfahrt" (means roughly the same thing 
but with more hassenpfeffer). I used it in a couple of CD compilations. 
Composed by Otto Rathke, who was one of the participants in the OKeh Laughing 
Record. Enough trivia.
