The Story

Pappy McCall is putting in another day at work on the Great Divide & Nevermore Railroad helping to keep the trains running. Although this picture might look like someone having a really long day at work, this guy is simply sticking with what he knows and still enjoys working for the railroad.

Besides, someone has to keep things moving. Otherwise, everything would obviously come to a dead stop. Most skeleton spooks don’t have to work after moving on to living in the Town of Afterlife, but Pappy always loved working as a freight train brakeman for the railroad in The Before.

Although skeleton spooks can see in the dark, Pappy has his old railroad lantern for signaling the locomotive engineer up ahead. The lantern is also great for scaring the be-cheezus out of any kids who happen to come near the railroad tracks at night. A skeleton with a swinging red lantern is a clear signal it’s time to run as fast as you can!

Railroading is dirty work with long hours, but somehow this spook knows how to keep his bones clean. They do rattle a little when the train gets going, though. There’s always a little wear and tear on a body from a life in motion working the freight trains, but Pappy says everything seems to be holding together pretty well despite the mileage.

Location: switching cars in the yard at the ghost town of Great Divide, soon to leave on the 4:20 to Nevermore by way of the town of Afterlife.
