Morbid Anniversary

February 28, 2016 is the 60th anniversary of a major train wreck in Swampscott, Massachusetts. Thirteen people were killed as a result of this crash. It happened on the same train line that I take quite frequently to Boston. I have a couple of photos posted here of the wreck but it is explained in full detail in the YouTube video below. Have a look.

I don't know why this video starts 9 minutes in but you can rewind back to learn a bit more about the Buddliners that were used by the B&M Railroad.
