Why did they nickname Skunk Train?
The name originated in 1925, when motorcars were introduced. These single unit, self-propelled motorcars had gasoline-powered engines for power and pot-bellied stoves burning crude oil to keep passengers war. The combination of the fumes created a very pungent oder, and the old timers living along the line said these motorcars were like skunks. “You could smell them before you could see them.”
