JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) – Electric car owners will soon be able to plug in at a spot known for a different kind of locomotion – Casey Jones Village in Jackson.

Officials of the tourist attraction and representatives of ECOtality will cut the ribbon Thursday on the only public charging station between Nashville and Memphis, according to a news release from Casey Jones Village.

Three Blink level 2 charging stations are being installed. They can accommodate the Nissan Leaf all-electric car.

Casey Jones Village is located at exit 80-A of Interstate 40.

It celebrates the life of famed railroad engineer Luther Jones, who was popularly known as "Casey" because he grew up near Cayce, Ky.

He died at the controls of his passenger train in a collision in 1900 at Vaughn, Miss.
