Looking Back to 1916: Unidentified Tramp Almost Killed in Train Wreck

From the December 21, 2016, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."

1916, 100 Years Ago.

"An unidentified tramp was almost instantly killed at the point where the Old Dutch road crosses the Chicago and North Western tracks south and east of Sycamore when a west bound freight train jumped the rails at 1:30 yesterday afternoon with 13 cars piled up in the ditch and were smashed up and strewn over the right of way."
