Casey Jones
Casey Jones was a railroad engineer for a train called the Cannonbal. Casey was known to get the train in on time. He would blow his wistle softly then get louder and louder. When he would come through town people would hear his wihstle. Casey drove the Cannonball to Memphis and got there right on time. Then as he was going he saw a very ill engineer that was a hour and 35 minutes late. Casey volunteered and then set off as fast as he could at 4 AM he made up all that time that was wasted. When he passed the corner of the Mississippi he saw a broken down freight train and told his fire men to jump off. Then Casey Jones died in the crash: ( . They still sing songs about Casey Jones.

you have a lot of details and voice in your story.

I liked it that you put details in your story it really brought the pictures to my mind.

I have a question about what had happened next? I really want to hear more about what happened.

I was looking for more details though when I first looked at your blog, but then I realized that it doesn't need as much more details as I thought you needed.

Pretty good details, but try to add more to it so more people will want to know more about it and will comment on it.

I heard that the Cannonball went to Memphis, and how it made the engineer ill,but why did it make him ill? Or how did it make the engineer ill? Add more detail to the story, there are a lot of questions that people would want to ask you. Again add more details so that
know what you are trying to tell us.
