Interesting story Rock Island Rick, I wonder if they made a movie. I really enjoy those adventure movies on planes or trains...especially the true stories.

John Luther "Casey" Jones, from Jackson, Tennessee, was an engineer on the Illinois Central Railroad. On the rainy and foggy night of April 30, 1900, his passenger train collided with a stalled freight train. Jones' heroic efforts to stop his train and avert the wreck in which he alone was killed caused him to become the focus of song, myth and legend.
