Bill is a brakeman for Frisco freight trains.

During the events of Jaws of Satan (1981) played by Bill Gribble

Trainman and Carnie Kid are playing dice in a train car transferring Greyhound dogs to a race track and a snake to a carnival. Carnie Kid tells Trainman the reason he is in the circus is so he can hook up with new women in every town. Trainman goes into the train car with the Greyhounds to check on why they are barking and the door suddenly closes behind him. The lock breaks on the box holding the snake and it attacks the Trainman, who falls out of the train. Later, Nurse Peggy is watching a news report by Denise Williams while sitting next to Trainman, who is in the hospital and Trainman starts to whisper snake.
