  1. Nice work, the alley where the body was found is on Forsyth St by the train station.

  2. Gillian Flynn is a female author. Your pronoun at the end of the article requires correction.

  3. Great show. Thanks for taking the time to compile this info! I played a charity concert at that train station about 15 years ago.

  4. Don't believe Southern Railway served Missouri. After all, "Southern serves the South". When the scenery folks were repainting the caboose they should have changed the railway name to one that served Missouri.

  5. Further research shows that Southern Railway did serve Missouri. I stand corrected. Might as well strike the previous comment.
