The story of Casey Jones

You may or may not know that Casey Jones, of railroad fame, is much more than a myth. Renowned for saving the lives of townfolk by taking control of a runaway locomotive—at the cost of his own life—Casey Jones rests in peace in Jackson, Tennessee.

Nearby is the Casey Jones home and museum.
