Tragedies and Accidents of the Chicago, Aurora and Elgin Railway

Thursday, October 26 | 7P | Wheaton Community Center Northside Room, #242 | FREE Event!

In this presentation Brian and Joyce Ostberg (BeHistoric) will investigate the many accidents and tragedies that befell railway workers, passengers, automobile drivers, and pedestrians over the decades–as they worked, lived their lives, and co-existed alongside the sixty plus miles of the sometimes dangerous Chicago, Aurora and Elgin electric railway.
