    train wreck of 1918

    Has anybody researched the train wreck that occurred north of Nashville in 1918. I saw this on the History Channell a couple of nights ago. The two trains collided head-on with a combined speed of about 100 MPH causing 102 deaths with even more injuries. Most of the cars were made of wood like the old west cars seen in the movies and splintered on impact. The wreck occurred north of Nashville somewhere on a north-south rail line.

    I hope this will help. I put the GPS location on the pic so you can go to Google Earth to look at it.

    two Nashville and St. Louis passenger trains clashed together near Bosley Springs at 7 o'clock this morning.

    The wreck occurred at 7:15 o'clock on the Dutchman's grade, seven miles from Nashville.

    Nashville, TN Train Wreck, Jul 1918 "The Great Train Wreck of 1918"
    Posted September 21st, 2008 by gendisasters

    The Great Train Wreck of 1918 occurred on July 9, 1918, in Nashville, Tennessee. Two passenger trains, operated by the Nashville, Chattanooga and St. Louis Railroad ("NC&StL"), collided head-on, killing 101 people and injuring an additional 171. It is considered the deadliest rail accident in United States history.

    The two trains involved were the No. 4, scheduled to depart Nashville for Memphis, Tennessee at 7:00 a.m., and the No. 1 from Memphis, about a half-hour late for a scheduled arrival in Nashville at 7:10 a.m. At about 7:20 a.m., the two trains collided while traversing a section of single track line known as "Dutchman's Curve" west of downtown, in the present-day neighborhood of Belle Meade. Traveling at an estimated 50/60 miles per hour, the impact derailed both trains and completely destroyed several wooden cars.

    It sure would be nice to be able to hunt that place. No telling what you would find. If you do let me know what you find. Thanks
