9780984807055: Dead Aggies Don't Drive Trains

Skullduggery on the Mailpie Line... Rex Albert, widowed, unemployed, and on the downhill side of middle age, had nothing better to do the day he drove along a soon-to-be-abandoned railroad line through the New Mexico desert. Then he ran across Comunicado Junction, spur to a twice-failed speculators’ dream from the turn of the last century. Little did he know that he was about to enter a portal into history - his own included. Of course, it wasn’t all quite legal, and a couple of people had died, and he might be next, but those things happen.

From the Author:

Who do I think would be interested in this book?

  • Aggies, from any state that has Aggies.
  • Train nuts.
  • Whodunit fans.
  • Old school musicians.
  • Present and future geezers, codgers, coots, curmudgeons, et al.
  • Folks who dream about chucking the job and hiding out in a valley somewhere.
  • People who prefer a book they can leave around the house without fear that a kid will pick it up and ask, "Mommy/Daddy/Grandma/Gramps, what's ... mean?" just before the owner drops his or her teeth.
  • Southern New Mexicans, because finally somebody wrote something about them. They are not Texans, or Mexicans, or even Northern New Mexicans, and they cannot all be painted with one brush.  There are some commonalities, though.  First is distance.  It's nothing for a high school football team to go a hundred miles for a game.  Second, family takes a higher priority than in some other regions.  Finally, folks don't take themselves too seriously.  If somebody gets a bit too puffed up, there's usually somebody else around to deflate them.

About the Author:

Don Bemis grew up to the sound of trains banging around the clock in the mining city of Carlsbad, in southeastern New Mexico.  Then he went to New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, where he played clarinet in the Aggie Band and married Lois, another Aggie clarinetist.  Lois is from the mountains of northern New Mexico and never really warmed up to the desert, so they compromised and moved to South Haven, Michigan, in 1979.

Dead Aggies Don't Drive Trains originated as a dream after a two-week, 3,500 mile train journey through the northern United States and Canada.  Don and Lois have ridden most of the major North American passenger routes, including some that aren't running any more.

They live a mile from Lake Michigan, ten miles from the nearest passenger station, and less than three hours from the Chicago rail hub.  They have five adult children and a growing supply of grandchildren.
