Buffalo Bill Derailed In Davidson County


Author(s):
Abstract:
An engineer's misunderstood message caused the collision of two trains near Linwood Station in Davidson County disrupting the tour of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. Ordered to pull into a siding to allow passage of the show train, the engineer then pulled his freight train back onto the tracks, unaware that a second show train was following. Myers recounts the aftermath of the collision.
