I don't know that anyone wrote it.  It's a version of "Reuben" and should be traditional.  That said, someone has probably claimed a copyright for it.  I know the Stanleys recorded the tune under that title and there's probably an author listed on that record.

The faster version was done by J.D. Crowe and his Kentucky Mountain Boys in the 70's.

I believe that "Train 45" was written by Ralph Stanley.

I have to apologize. When I looked at the physical copy of Ralph Stanley's version, the composition is credited to Ruby Rakes. I think that's the correct answer...
