Mystery at Mango 'Lines South' story : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

I have just finished reading Louie E. Hicks'powerful story (' Mystery at Mango')in the 1st Qt. 'Lines South'. How ironic (& sad) that his grandfather and father would lose their lives 23 yrs apart in rail accidents at almost the exact same place ! Mr Hicks certainly deserves praise for this very poignant and personal story.

I second your comments, and to add to the irony, the steam locomotive that "killed" his father was in another fatal accident with his uncle at the throttle.
