Over the years Casey had his share of extra passenger runs and he liked the work and the pay, and generally, passenger runs offered much shorter.

In The Tracks Of Casey Jones. I was a child attending grade school when I was first exposed to the story of Casey Jones. Every year, the Scholastic Book Fair made its way to my school. One year, I found a book with a picture of a steam engine and an engineer on it. Locomotive # was displayed by the IC at the Columbian Exposition in.

This famous locomotive was known for its highly polished six-chime bell. (Photo by PhotoQuest/Getty Images). Jones had to move his family to Memphis and give up working with his close friend John Wesley McKinnie on No.

Casey Jones' fame rests on a series of nondescript verses, which can hardly be called poetry. Casey liked No. and especially liked working in the Jackson District because his family was in Jackson.

They had once moved to Water Valley but Jackson was really home to the Jones family. Casey drove the engine until he transferred to Memphis in. Jonathan Luther "Casey" Jones (Ma – Ap ) from Jackson, Tennessee, was an American railroader who worked for the Illinois Central Railroad (IC).

He was killed on Apwhen his train collided with a stalled freight train near Vaughan, Mississippi. His dramatic death while trying to stop his train and save the lives of his passengers made him a hero; he was.

A movie, Casey Jones (), starred Ralph Lewis as Casey Jones, Kate Price as his wife, and a young Jason Robards Sr. as Casey Jones, Jr. In his painting "Sources of Country Music", Thomas Hart Benton chose Casey Jones' fateful Engine No. the "Cannonball", to represent the influence of railroads on Country Music.

Casey was so tall that he sometimes had to fold himself into a “Z” in order to fit into a locomotive’s cabin, as cabs were often called at the time.

As was common among railroad men, he acquired his nickname Casey, simply spelled, after his hometown.There is controversy over the circumstances prior to Casey Jones' last, fatal run. In the account given in the book Railroad Avenue by Freeman H. Hubbard, which was based on an interview with fireman Sim Webb, he and Casey had been used extra on trains 3 and 2 to cover for engineer Sam Tate who had marked off ill.
