Bob, I enjoyed it too, learning about many obscure wrecks/accidents. I do recommend the book, but just double check anything which seems questionable.

All wrecks are nasty, but New Market ranks right up there.

That would be suspicious, Jack.

The book was written by an English professor as a study of ballads and the wrecks that inspired them, it was not written by a railroader or a rail enthusiast.

I agree that it has its shortcomings, but it taught me something.

Thanks Bob,

It's an interesting book, but some pictures in her article on the New Market wreck are questionable (e.g. wrecked freight cars in the wreck of two passenger trains).

I accidentally hit "send" before I was finished.  Sorry.

The previously mentioned book is a study of train wrecks and the ballads written about them.

I don't think it is still in print, but one could probably be found at a show, on ebay, or at Amazon.
