Summary

Summary

Though it's quickly fading with the continued proliferation of highways, the folklore of American railroading is full of ghostly legends. This new book brings those tales together for the first time. Ghost trains, ghosts along the tracks, haunted tunnels and stations -- they're all here, 90 ghostly tales of the rails illustrated, with period photographs and specially commissioned artwork. The stories come from all regions of the United States and include such famous legends as the Maco light, the ghost train of Marshall Pass, Lincoln's train and the ghost train of the Arizona desert. No matter where the reader lives, they'll find a tale close to home.
