Train Wreck at Michigan Central Station – September 16, 1940

“At 11:10 am a New York Central train derailed in front of the Michigan Central Ann Arbor Michigan station. The force of the impact turned the locomotive on its side and stacked up the cars behind it. Various cars in the consist contained coal, oil and liquid asphalt. Surprisingly the engineer and firemen were able to crawl unharmed from the wreck, but a man riding behind the engine was killed and burned. The force of the impact was so great that rails and cross ties were ripped from their foundations and thrown 30 feet.”
