    He either committed suicide or he was deaf.

    That is where they first saw him, walking on a railroad trestle.

    It would be like Slim to buy a haunted ghost truck. Although there could be some uses in the storyline from time to time where Jimmy might advise Slim on some problem. People would see Slim talking to nobody…

    Looking back on some of the dialog, things begin to make sense.
    “I’ve been trying to get home.”
    “B-r-r I’m soaked to the bone and I’m c-c-cold.”
    “You’ll get a halo for this.”
    “With the wind and rain, this’d make a great plot for a ghost movie.”
    “That’s our family plot.”

    Although these days people would just assume that he’s talking on his phone with one of those headsets. Its actually a golden era for those who talk to themselves. Just put on earbuds and people will think you’re on the phone.

    I used to cross a long rail bridge to fish as a kid. We’d put our ear to the rail – you could hear the train coming a lot further away that way than through the air.

    Slim’s first thought is: that he’ll never see his “GA” jacket again.

    This story sounds a little like the Phantom 309 Red Sovine song.
