On the Rails

This right-of-way challenge was resolved by a 104-unit MKT freight train operating on Katy tracks at the present Glenbrook Dr. crossing. Mrs. Getherel S. Marchiles, the car's driver, had abandoned her vehicle only seconds before the collision. After ramming the 1957 Plymouth, the train dragged it 192 feet. The press photo was snapped ca. 1960.
