Thriller Thursday - Trains & Sleepwalkers

Higbee (Saline Co. MO) News

Friday, 12 Sep 1913--Wm. Chinn, a C & A brakeman, residing at Slater, was killed at Roodhouse, Ill, Sunday night, being hit by a passenger train.  Before going to bed in the caboose he sat out on the steps in his night clothes to cool off and in his sleep wandered on the main track just as the passenger train came along.
