Crossword clues for alouette


Alouette or alouettes may refer to:

Alouette (song)

"Alouette" is a popular French-Canadian children's song about plucking the feathers from a lark, in retribution for being woken up by its song. Although it is in French, it is well-known among speakers of other languages; in this respect it is similar to " Frère Jacques". Many American doughboys and other Allied soldiers learned the song while serving in France during World War I and took it home with them, passing it on to their children and grandchildren.

Alouette (train)

The Alouette was a passenger train jointly operated by the Boston and Maine Railroad and the Canadian Pacific Railway between Montreal, Quebec and Boston, Massachusetts. The Alouette began service on April 26, 1926, operating on a daytime schedule with coach and parlor car service. Until late 1954, the train operated over Canadian Pacific trackage to Wells River, Vermont, where it entered the Boston and Maine for the remainder of the way to Boston via Plymouth and Concord, New Hampshire. After the Boston and Maine abandoned its trackage north of Plymouth, the train was rerouted via White River Junction, Vermont.

In 1956, the Alouette was discontinued; service on its schedule continued until 1965 using Budd Rail Diesel Cars.
