gives readers plenty of clues and suspects and Bailey Ruth
and Wiggins once again entertain us with their interaction.
Bailey has a bit of fun sharing her love of clothes and food

on a celestial train track followed by the smell of coal smoke
keeps Bailey Ruth on her toes. Most of all, Wiggin's life
before the red brick train station and Rescue Express are
revealed. Discovering the man he was on earth is quite touching.
