The Story

Here sit two EMD FL-9 diesel locomotives in deep winter snow and the biting cold of a frigid minus twenty day. Wearing red, silver, and blue, their last gig was as Metro North locomotives hauling trains of commuters in and out of New York City. Snowcapped today, however, the number boards are blank and the big headlight vacant. They’re spending retirement as part of a small railroad museum that never seems to get off the ground.

There’s something else about them that’s mighty peculiar though. The footprints through the snow simply disappear into thin air without explanation, so these Metro North locomotives might be haunted! If you think a haunted train is rather suspicious too, first call Shaggy and Scooby then go to my other view of this train Deadline #14107 for the full writeup.
