Bibliography edited by Paul Darrell
UNTIL a few years ago, every locomotive engineer and fireman sat in the engine's cab on what was known as a seat box. In it was kept a miscellany of personal possessions, such as tools, lunch kit, a change of clothes, etc. This seat box was virtually a locker.
Reference to a watery grave in the bottom of the sea has long been known as "Davy Jones' Locker". So, by analogy and adoption the author chose the eponym, CASEY JONES' LOCKER as a label for an assortment of items such as Casey and others interested in Railroads might preserve for reading and reference.
