Photograph of a wrecked car, with the front crunched in, and laying next to a railway crossing. Caption from St. Thomas Times-Journal, October 17, 1951, page one: “Fortunately There Was Nobody in It.” 1_3068: “The crumpled wreckage of a 1950 Plymouth automobile owned by Donald Wolfe, Springfield, lay all day Tuesday near the N.Y.C. crossing in the southeast outskirts of the village beside the right-of-way after being hit the night before by a Chesapeake & Ohio westbound freight. Mrs. Wolfe, driving the car with three women passengers, misjudged her position on the road at the crossing in a dense fog and the car became wedged between the tracks. She and the other women were trying to get the car extricated when the wigwag signals at the crossing began operating. There was nothing for them to do but stand clear and let the oncoming freight demolish the vehicle. It was cast aside 150 feet or so west of the crossing where other similar accidents have occurred.”

Photographs of a train collision with a truck, and debris scattered around the train tracks. Caption from St. Thomas Times-Journal, December 3, 1951, page nine: “Virtually Nothing Left of Truck in Which Otterville Children Killed: Tillsonburg Tragedy Was End of Trip to See St. Nick.” 1_3450, 1_3449, 1_3453, 1_3454, and 1_3447: “These are scenes of the tragedy at the Tilson avenue crossing of the New York Central in Tillsonburg Saturday afternoon in which three Otterville children, William Campbell, 12; Olive Campbell, 11, and Carol Campbell, 10, met instant death. The remains of their father’s two-ton truck, completely demolished when it was hit by a fast westbound express, appear strewn along the north side of the track for 400 yards west of the crossing. The upper left photo is a view taken from a point about 100 yards west of the crossing and looking toward the Tillsonburg depot just east of the crossing with a train standing on the westbound track waiting for a switch to be repaired. Centre left is the crushed cab of the truck, under which the mangled body of one of the little girls was found. Other parts of the truck are shown bottom left. In the upper right picture, Tony Dennis, of St. Thomas, looks at the mark left on the side of a railway shanty 150 yards west of the crossing where the wheel of the truck lying in the foreground crashed against it. The front of engine No. 5215 was photographed as it appeared on its arrival in St. Thomas with part of Campbell’s truckload of scrap wedged in the frame, including old oil and paint cans, cartons and other junk. Lower right is Arthur Chipps, R.R. 3., Delhi, employed in a planning mill close to the crossing, was one of the first on the scene. He said the crash of the train into Campbell’s truck sounded like an explosion.”

(Art) Mildren, who made his last run before going into retirement on pension, over the Canada Division of the Michigan Central Railroad (New York Central System) today. He brought the crack New York Central passenger No. 50 into the local officials and congratulated on his long and outstanding career of service. “It is a career that was broken by service in Canada and overseas during the First World War. A member of the 91st Battalion, Mr. Mildren was chosen with Roy Palmerston, another retired N. Y. C. engineer; and James (Jimmy) Stover, retired city postoffice employee, as being three men most typical of the Canadian soldier. They were transferred to Windsor, Ontario, for special recruiting service. It has often been said that they recruited a large percentage of the men in the old 153rd Regiment. Numbers of the men recruited for the 153rd by the selected trio from the 91st Battalion were Americans who come to Windsor seeking adventure. “Born in Maryfort, England, on October 18, 1835, Mr. Mildren came to Canada as a young man and found employment with thye Michigan Central Railroad in St. Thomas on April 18, 1905. He started as a painter’s helper in the old car shops in this city.” (…)
