The Celestial Railroadby Nathaniel Hawthorne, Charles Osgood (Photographer)
"The Celestial Railroad" is short story written as an allegory by American author Nathaniel Hawthorne. In it, Hawthorne parodies the seventeenth-century book The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan, which portrays a Christian's spiritual "journey" through life. In this story, the pilgrim journeys by iron horse rather than by foot, the burden of sin that Bunyan portrays

This is a digitized version of an old edition of the story. The transcription is so poor that the text is barely readable. Perhaps the Gutenberg Project does a better job.
