Legendary Railroader Casey Jones Smiling in Grave - Roosevelt Island F Train Subway Service Back to Normal This Weekend
Today is Friday and I am happy to report that there are no F Train weekend subway advisories for Roosevelt Island from the MTA as there has been for the last 4 weekends. Let's see how long this lasts. Legendary railroad man Casey Jones and Johnny Cash are pleased, at least for this weekend.
Casey Jones lyrics here.
Come all you rounders if you wanna hear the story about a brave engineerThe skipper from Gilligans Island, Alan Hale Jr., played Casey Jones in this old TV series.
Casey Jones was the roller's name on a 68 wheeler course he won his fame
Caller called Casey bout half past four he kissed his wife at the station door
He climbed in the cabin with his orders in his hand
Said this is the trip to the Promised Land
Casey Jones climbed in the cabin Casey Jones orders in his hand
Casey Jones leanin' out the window taking a trip to the Promised Land...
