OriginEdit

Casey Jones worked for the Illinois Central Railroad, who worked hard enough to be promoted from fireman to locomotive engineer. His route covered mainly area in Mississippi for freight services. After creating his own signature sounding train whistle and serving as a serviceman at the Chicago’s World Fair, he was switched to operating passenger trains. While he was driving the Cannonball Express on a wet and foggy night, the train collided with a stalled freight car. Jones reacted fast enough to warn his crew and passengers to evacuate, but he stayed aboard the train and was the wreck’s only causality. Due to the heroic sacrifice he performed, he has become a noted figure in American folklore.

EffectsEdit

Clicking open the pocket watch, combined with the will of the user, will electrify the rails of a train and cause it to accelerate greatly. Any attempts to lessen its velocity will result in the train and its trailing cars to tip over and crash.
