Casey Jones State Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Three separate segments make up the Casey Jones State Trail, which is one of the first state trails authorized by Minnesota state trail legislation in the 1960s. The rail-trail is named for the engineer immortalized in the “Ballad of Casey Jones.” In 1900 in Mississippi, the engineer “died at the throttle” when the train he was conducting collided with another train."
