    I love the "Train to Morrow" song, with the "Jim Henson" muppet.
    Is the clerk singing with him also the likeness of a real person?

    Yes! Actually all three of them are, it's the Jim Henson Muppet who's singing as the traveler, the Muppet modeled after Jerry Nelson is the clerk, and the bass player is the Frank Oz Muppet. The Frank Oz Muppet always threw me for a loop and I recently also learned it was based on Frank. The bright orange hair is what confused me. But the Kermitage and The Counts Muppet Listings name him as Frank Oz.

    TRAVELLER (Jim Henson):
    I started on a journey just about a year ago,
    To a little town called "Morrow" in the state of Ohio
    I'd never been much of a traveller and I really didn't know,
    That Morrow was the hardest place I'd ever try to go.

    So I went down to the station for my ticket and applied
    For tips regarding Morrow not expecting to be guide
    Said I, "My friend, I'd like to go to Morrow and return,
    No later than tomorrow for I haven't time to burn."

    Said he to me,

    Now let me see if I have heard you right
    You'd like to go to Morrow and return tomorrow night
    You should have gone to Morrow yesterday and back today,
    For the train that goes to Morrow is a mile upon its way
    If you had gone to Morrow yesterday now don't you see,
    You could have gone to Morrow and returned today at 3
    For the train today to Morrow if the schedule is right,
    Today it gets to Morrow and returns tomorrow night.

    Said I, "I'd like to go to Morrow so can I go today,
    And get to Morrow by tonight if there is no delay?"

    "Well, well," I said to him, and I've got no more to say,
    "Can you get anywhere tomorrow and get back again today?"

    Said I, "I guess you know it all, but kindly let me say,
    How can I get to Morrow if I leave this town today?"
    Said he,

    You can not go to Morrow anymore today,
    For the train that goes to Morrow is a mile upon its way.

    I was so disappointed, I was mad enough to swear
    The train had gone to Morrow and it left me standing there
    The man was right in telling me,

    You are a howling jay
    You cannot go to Morrow...

    Well I guess in town I'll stay.

    FIDDLER (Frank Oz):
    I don't get it.
