50 years after the accident....one survivor still alive!

April 16, 2003

I received a very interesting article dating back to the year 1950.  Exactly 50 years after the bridge collapse accident.  Click on the thumbnail below to read it.  The story does confirm that the locomotive did fall on its side.  This might explain why nobody saw it in the early 80's when they lowered the river.  Assuming it's still there, that is!  Mr. McCluskey was the Fireman on the locomotive and mentions in the article that the bridge collapse was the highlight of his career.
