Celebrate The 150th Birthday Of Railroad Legend Casey Jones – 02/26/2013 – Chattanoogan.com

Although we do not generally do nostalgia here, Mr. Jones was once an employee of the Gulf Mobile and Northern RR, as was my dad (later GM&O). Although  the real Casey Jones is probably nothing like the one dreamed up by the Illinois Central, you can still enjoy a legend, can’t you?

They rob trains in San Antonio

Maybe some Little Rock passengers on board?

Today’s northbound Texas Eagle from San Antonio was robbed overnight while at San Antonio, with the cars in from LA being broken into as well as the staff car. All luggage was taken belonging to the passengers as well as the Amtrak staff that was downstairs in the cars. Reportedly, even the possessions of the Amtrak crew, including the conductor, were taken. Police believe it may have been done by a drug gang that hangs out in the area.
