Gilmore, MO Storm And Train Wreck Jul 1915
Gilmore, Mo., was nearly wiped out, yet only one man was found dead there.
Between Gilmore and Wentsville, a Wabash passenger train, known as the Colorado limited, crossed the path of the storm and the first four coaches in the train were nearly plucked by the wind and laid to one side of the right of way.
Not a person was injured seriously in this accident. Those in the ditched cars ran back to the five passenger coaches left standing on the tracks; these were coupled to the tender and the train proceeded on its journey.
Two hundred men were at work today building a temporary bridge for the Wabash railroad near Gilmore, Mo., the railway bridge having been swept away in yesterday's storm.
