Long Description:
The engine Casey drove that night, the 382, was a steam driven Rogers Ten Wheeler with six drivers, each approximately six foot high. Bought new in 1898 from the Roger's Locomotive Works, it was a very powerful engine for the time. Casey reportedly called the 382 his "Old Girl in High Heel Slippers".
The 382 was renumbered during its 37 years as 212, 2012, and 5012. Reportedly the 382 was to take five lives before it was retired from service in 1935.
In 1980, the engine was moved to the Casey Jones Village in Jackson, Tennessee.
