Skippy Martin was that kind of kid you either liked or disliked.
Dad called him, "Skipper Dipper!"
Because as a child, he was always into things.
He was especially fascinated with HO trains.
Dad Martin set up a nice display each and every Christmas Eve.
Christmas of '64, Skip would be ten years old on the 31st of December.
Dad told him he would one day be a locomotive conductor!
(Just for his little, "Skipper Dipper!)
The kid even had his own little choo-choo hat!
Winter turned into the Spring, then into Summer, and finally, was followed by early Fall.
And, it was September 14th. (The beginning of a new school year)
And, Skippy be going into fourth grade.
As a 4th grader, dad had "Great Expectations"
For "His Little Conductor!"
Each day, Skip and a couple of his friends would walk the rails to Leddons Hardware Store.
From there, they would walk down Mullica Hill to the Elementary school in Sewell, New Jersey.
Rodger Grant was his best friend while Bruce Bosco didn't seem to care much or Skip.
And, he labeled him what he called, "A Little Weirdo"
Of course, Skip new this but he treated everyone equally.
After all he was a Mormon and Latter-Day Saint with,
"The Church of Jesus Christ."
His dad Martin was the current President and his mother Ruth was in charge of the "Relief Society."
Together they would take turns teaching Sunday School for the entire church of Jesus Christ on Mary Bell road.
Yes, Life for the Martin Family was good...
As good as it should...
If it only could?
September 30th, 1964 started out much like any other day.
But Bruce decided he wanted to play "Chicken"
And, with the oncoming freight train.
And, he dared Skippy to stay on the rails the longest!
The winner would get a $0.05 King size Three Musketeers candy bar?
And of course, how could any kid resist?
Skip thought the idea was cool while Bruce called him a Weirdo and now a Sissy!
So, at 7:15 a.m. on September 30th 1964.
The freight train came as scheduled and all three boys sat on the tracks.
The boys knew the power of this train.
And, they would line up Lincoln pennies with different dates on them.
This way they could see who's penny passed the test?
The winner was the one that was smashed the flattened the largest!
And, then that kid had the bragging rights!
But, on that day that would not matter because they all would play, "Chicken"
And of course, Skip or "Skipper Dipper"
(As his dad would call him) Who had a bright future as a train Conductor.
Also got an early trip on a Freight train.
Yes, an early Trip to the Grave!
'Skip's last name was changed for I knew him personally and I also knew of the accident.'
'That Winter I remember walking those rail tracks in Sewell, New Jersey.'
'And finding something something, that was unusual.'
'It was a concave almost shaped like a shell.'
'But you could see the inside dried up membranes of the veins.'
'And also the hair from Skippy's head.'
'And, I will present another true horror story.'
'And yes, dealing with that train...
'And yes, in that same town.'
'That I grew up in.'
'In the future for this book.'
Approximate Word Count: 761.
Special thanks goes out first, as always, to Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ.
