My son, Kevin, lives in Mobile and writes for the weekly publication, Lagniappe. I am proud of him and his ability to tell a story. He is a tireless researcher and digs hard to get those tiny facts and quotes that bring a story to life.
On September 22, 1993 ,The Sunset Limited left the train station in Mobile past midnight headed east. Unfortunately, within minutes the train derailed and chaos consumed the dark and very foggy night in the water and mud of the Mobile Delta.
Here is Kevin’s recounting of this event. He puts the reader in the midst of this Hellish scene. If you appreciate good writing, treat yourself.
