Description

The Wreck of the Red Arrow: An American Train Tragedy is the riveting tale of one of America’s worst train wrecks – a true story told by rescuers, physicians, nurses, officials – and passengers and crew members on the Red Arrow itself. A part of Altoona history, the story of the Red Arrow is riddled with controversy blending information from news articles, government reports, and rare documents from the Pennsylvania Railroad with first-person accounts by surviving passengers, their descendants, and first responders. Written by Dennis P. McIlnay.
