rail tracks beyond scotia, emsdale, Northern and Pacific Junction Railway, personal family tragedy

Steel ribbon – the last connection to Home. Once he stepped away, he was gone. In 1896, this rail trip was the last for my great-grandfather James Mullen. Destined for Katrine – to connect with a friend – when he disembarked at Emsdale he walked to Kearney instead; then was led two days into the bush and clubbed to death in his sleep for seven dollars.
