Casey Jones Tidbits

Loosley based on the life of John Luther "Casey" Jones, a real-life train engineer. The Midwest and Central Railroad line during the late 1800s ran from from Chicago to New Orleans.

This was a warm-hearted show geared toward kids. Starring the affable Alan Hale, before he was marooned on that island with Gilligan. The story centered around the Cannonball Express steam engine.

Passings

Alan Hale died in 1990 of cancer of the thymus. Eddy Waller in 1977 of a stroke. Dub Taylor died in 1994 of congestive heart failure.
