The hands of his watch reach for four o’clock on the murky morning of April 30, 1900, as Engineer John Luther Jones brings Illinois Central No. 1 through Pickens, Miss. Employing every ounce of his mastery of throttle and brake, Casey has coaxed Rogers Ten-Wheeler 382 to within minutes of being on time. But 6.6 miles ahead in Vaughan at 3:52 a.m., Jones will meet eternity and legend.
