Hey Kids! Every city had their local kid's TV personalities in the 60's and 70's. One of the great ones we had in the Minneapolis area (channel 11) was Casey Jones along with his sidekick Roundhouse Rodney. I only caught the tail end of this childhood local programming. What I remember most was his Happy Birthday song. I do have a memory of seeing Casey at a local parade driving a very small train (more like a go-cart). He barely fit in the thing and I remember it smoking pretty badly. He was all smiles and waves and I remember thinking, "Wow! I just saw Casey Jones." On the way back to car with my family we saw the same little train in the ditch, abandoned, on it's side, with a bottle laying next to it... I wish there was something like this for my son to watch. All of this light-hearted, simple program is gone.
