Illegal casino operated in train carsThe deputies served a search warrant and confiscated 119 slot machines and $15,000 in cash from the passenger cars. There were four passenger train cars on the spur line, two of which had been converted for use in the gambling operation, according to deputies. The cars were not attached to any engine. Investigators said that the owner told them that he believed because the spur was federal property, it was legal to have gambling at the location. Deputies said that the spur is private property, so the dispute is expected to end up in court.

Nineteen people were cited with illegal gambling and a female employee is expected to be charged with operating the illegal casino.
