Terror of Haunted Locomotives. [Newspaper Article] — Morwell Advertiser and Weekly Chronicle — 14 May 1887
Terror of Iaunted Locomotives. LocoroTrrn engineers are almost, if not alto gether, as superstitioun in regard to haunted locomotives as sailors arein regard to haunted ships, says the Tribune. About ten years ago the engine Matt Morgan blew up while stand. ing on the track of the Shore Line road near the station in Providence, It. I., killing the engineer. The engine was subsequently re built and put on the road. On the first trip that she made after being rebuilt she went tearing into Providence in the night with the train swinging behind, and the sleeping town echoing to the shrill whistle. On approach ing the station the engineer leaned forward to shut off steam, but to his horror a ghostly form appeared at his side, and a ghostly hand grasped his wrist and held him fast. When the station was reached the ghost dis appeared, and the engineer stopped the train some distance beyond. At least, this is what the engineer tells. Many people have not forgotten the terrible Richmond swit...
