Of course the real Casey Jones was never in the "Wild West." His railroad engineering days were on the old Illinois Central line that ran (and still does under another name) from Chicago to New Orleans.

Ah, yes, I remember that show, and even some of the them song! And yes, Col Campbell, it was a bit disappointing when I put things together some years later, and realized the real Casey Jones had nothing to do with the Old West. I do regret that I didn't have a chance to visit any of the Jones sites in Mississippi when I drove through over Thanksgiving, 1996.
