More about Larry Penn:

Has a really good one called "End of Train Device" about the demise of cabooses. I was trying to remember when this happened--I know trains still had them when I was a kid so I'm guessing about 15 years ago.

He's also got one about Kate Shelley, who crawled across a trestle in the dark, during a storm, with her dead father's railroad lantern to warn of a wash-out.
