My dudes, this looks like the ghost train I was trying to find out by Brandon Avenue!

Full disclosure — there is no ghost train in Roanoke, Virginia … at least as far as I am aware.  In our Propaganda Era, I am loathe to start even a harmless urban legend.  (Santa Claus is quite real, however.)


Christmas card, Kinney Brothers Tobacco Company, 1899.  Commercial color lithograph.
