Casey Jones: Private Muffler Man

I found another Muffler Man. He's located on the grounds of the Edward Lowe Foundation. Edward Lowe made his fortune in kitty litter, and the foundation is his legacy. The Muffler Man is a statue of Casey Jones. The Foundation hosts tours; just call for details.

[Nicholas Giraldo, 04/12/2015]

Ed Lowe bought the Muffler Man, who had stood in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and had him customized as "Casey Jones." Then Lowe set up the big guy on his private estate, encircled by several real railroad cars.
