Cy's "Nickel Plate" comes to the end

And it's a sad ending at that. The ghost of a once unique outfit is scheduled to become a 'rails-to-trails' operation by December, or early next year when the roadbed is paved.

Cy worked with many men who were very familiar with this line. The last prior right* man remaining retired less than a year ago. Cy heard many a story related to this route. Two of Cy's children live in Hamilton County. That's all.

*He didn't get fenced in by his prior rights.

He was still hand firing a yard goat on the Red Team. They hadn't merged yet.

 Zebediah grabbed that old reverse lever and told the fireboy he better tie a 2 X 4 across his ass before he got sucked into the firebox.
