This short tape conveys the importance of railroads in the South. The railroad employees were so dedicated, they died with their trains rather than "jump ship." Casey Jones, an engineer who perished with the brake in his hand in a huge wreck, was a local hero. JD Jackson's resonant and rolling voice sounds like gospel music spoken aloud. His voice lulls listeners, painting a picture of the Southern landscape and watching trains. This proud rendition will educate children about another time and place. A.G.H.
