King Snipe was a train worker who worked his whole life until his death on the Blue Bayou’s train line.

You’ve heard King Snipe would sing old spirituals at night and would say he was a “lost soul” with no place but this train to call home, sometimes until he cried to his fellow watchmen in the yard.

You’ve heard that King Snipe loved to “throw the bones”, incurring some debts from gambling, but he was so intimidating few would ever come collect.
