Since Halloween is fast approaching and the family and I just returned from a Halloween train ride and a tour of a haunted railroad museum I thought I would begin a post about spooky train tales. At the railroad museum tour they handed some stories out and I will post one of the short ones. The Headless Engineer’s Light According to a local legend, in the 1890’s, a Louisville & Nashville engineer was killed when he accidentally leaned too far from the cab window. When the train went into a sharp curve, he was thrown out of the engine and was decapitated by his own train. Since that time, the engineer has returned many times looking for his head. After an evening freight train passes by the sight, at 9:30 or so, a light appears and sways back and forth over the track. Locals say the light is the ghost of the headless engineer, looking for his head. Lets hear some more.
