Ghost Train

Ghost Train 1

A few years ago a cousin purchased some wooded farmland.  While he was checking the fences before turning in his cattle he discovered an old railroad grade that seeming went nowhere.

While I was visiting, he took me for a look-see and then told the story of a 1920s a businessman had proposed a new railroad.  After signing up a number of investors he began a section of the grade.  However, before any ties and rails were laid he took the investors money and vanished.

After returning home I pondered my cousin’s “Ghost Train” and began a poem which would tell the story.  The poem has yet to become functional, but I am prepared to share a photo of my train as seen on a dark and foggy night.
