HostIan Punnett

GuestsOpen Lines, Tony Reevy

Filling in for George, Ian Punnett (armed with his new train whistle) welcomed author Tony Reevy during the first half of the program. Reevy talked about railroad folklore and shared stories from his book, Ghost Train: American Railroad Ghost Legends.

Reevy recounted the legend of Screaming Jenny, a burning ghost that some say haunts the tracks near Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. Employees of the Harpers Ferry train station claim to hear ghostly passenger noises coming from an empty waiting room and the sounds of a phantom steam locomotive, he said.

Reevy also discussed the ghostly wreck at Marshall Pass, the Maco Light and other tales involving decapitated train workers, as well as the story of Abraham Lincoln's funeral train. According to Reevy, a ghost train carrying Lincoln's coffin appears regularly in Illinois in the month of April. Witnesses have reported seeing blue-coated ghosts and a skeleton band playing as well as strange time anomalies as the ghost train passes, Reevy explained.

The remainder of the show featured Open Lines with a special topic line for anyone wanting to share how a Coast to Coast guest changed their life. Several callers phoned in with more ghost light and railroad stories.
