Hamburg, NY Train Wreck, Aug 1906


At midnight Sunday the Pacific Express from New York was wrecked near Hamburg, New York. The train ran into a landslide which the heavy rains had washed upon the track. The engine and baggage car were thrown from the rails and plunged into the Hudson river. The engineer, the fireman, and a baggageman were drowned. The other cars were run together in a wreck and many of the passengers seriously injured. A special train carrying relief was immediately sent.
