The tragedy at the Loomis street crossing (NIC)

Friday, April 25, 2014 at 7:00 PM -- Nichols Library
It has been 68 years since the Naperville tragic train accident that took the lives of 45 people. It was the worst disaster in the history of the Burlington Railroad. Chuck Spinner, author of ?"The Tragedy a the Loomis Street Crossing,?" spent five years researching the stories of 45 passengers who lost their lives on that day, interviewing eye witnesses and talking with rescue works and injured passengers. His book prompted the forming of a committee that worked with the Century Walk organization toward the creating of a memorial called ?"Tragedy to Triumph,?" created by Paul Kuhn. The statue will be dedicated at 1:00 p.m. at the Naperville Train Station on Saturday, April 26.
