I’ll be reading ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’ and ‘Wizard of Oz’ author L. Frank Baum’s story, ‘Kidnapped Santa Claus’ and singing Christmas songs at Bowling Green’s Historic Railpark and Train Museum this Friday and Saturday, 6:30-7p.m. Come join me for cocoa, cookies, Santa Claus and a delicious chocolate train wreck!
The Chocolate Wreck is the most famous train wreck in the New York, Ontario and Western Railroad’s history. It happened a little after 9 p.m. on September 27, 1955, when the ON-2, an O&W train on a nonstop route to Norwich, was passing through Hamilton. The train unexpectedly jumped the switch and violently collided into the Leland Coal shed. Several of the derailed cars were transporting Nestle chocolate and one car broke open, littering the accident scene with Crunch bars. Hamiltonian Michael Mordus, in an interview for the 1995 Hamilton Bicentennial Book, recalled: “All the candy bars spilled out. The area kids had a ball getting candy until the authorities stopped the looting.”  While the children enjoyed their Nestle Crunch Bars and hundreds of other Hamiltonians assembled to view the plethora of chocolate bars and the mangled metal mess, clean up efforts began in earnest.  (From Maroon-News)Join us this weekend at Bowling Green’s Historic Railpark and Train Museum as we commemorate the event and welcome the holiday season in a delicious way! Enjoy interpretations of the event by local restaurants, (including ‘wrecking’/eating their entries on Sunday!), a visit from Santa, Christmas songs and stories and more December 2, 3 & 4.
