  1. I was there 60 years ago after the crash. It was the next day, I believe. My Father took me to see the crash site. I was only three but I remember it like it was yesterday.

  2. My dad took me to see the wreck I was 6 at the time. Later when I was able to drive I went down Hwy 24 and under the rail bridge, I felt that I had been here before. I asked around until I found out that there was a derailment at this location.

  3. Great history about Cambridge.
    Did you hear of any haunting's that some speculate have occurred at Preston Springs?
