The Wreck of the Broker: NJ’s Deadliest Train Wreck
September 28 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
On the drizzly evening of February 6, 1951, the Pennsylvania Railroad commuter train known as “The Broker” derailed in Woodbridge, New Jersey, killing 85 and injuring hundreds in what remains the deadliest railroad accident in the state’s history. What happened is reasonably well-understood. Why it happened, however, is an area of controversy that few (if any) histories have fully explored.
Author Gordon Bond has written a second edition of his in-depth book titled “Man Failure: The Story of New Jersey’s Deadliest Train Wreck” to investigate the mystery of the crash with the keen eye of an experienced historian and established non-fiction author.
