bustraincollisionc
January 22, 1930 - 8:35AM - On a Clear, cold, sunny, morning with a little fresh snow. The school bus drives onto Sheldon Rd. rail- crossing in front on an approaching train. Nine school children and the bus driver died. One school bus passenger injured. The collision occured when a school bus stopped at a railroad crossing to allow one train to pass, and when it proceeded across the the double set of tracks it was then struck by a second train. Both trains were headed in the same direction at the time of the collision. The train that hit the school bus was traveling about 50 to 55 miles per hour when it struck the school bus at the crossing. The school bus was a model T Ford and was entirely demolished. The train engineer reported he was unaware of the collision and was initially told about it by the fireman who thought the locomotive might have thrown a tire. When the engineer brought the train to a stop and began to examine his engine, he found school books scattered on the guard at the front of the locomotive. The accident was caused by the school bus, after waiting for one train to pass, being driven upon the railroad grade crossing directly in the path of a train that was approaching at high speed.

SUMMERS IN THE SUN
I remember clearly
Childhood days I treasured dearly
Memories remind me
Of all the happiness behind me
Children on a see-saw
Throwing pebbles by the seashore
I remember still a meadow on a hill
Where once I used to run
In summers in the sun

But oh, they didn't last
Those days went much too fast
And now I miss them so
Where did the time all go

I recall the good times
Those sentimental sandalwood times
Holidays and high days
Winter nights and warm july days
And I wonder why now
I never see a butterfly now
Waste too many hours
No time to smell the flowers
Or taste the gentle fun
Of summers in the sun

Oh no, they didn't last
Those days went much too fast
And now I miss them so
Where did the time all go

Sadly as the time goes
We lose the innnocence a child knows
I remember so well
The simple wonder of a sea shell
Catching fish in wild streams
And dreaming dreams
That every child dreams
Life was simple then
They'll never come again
I miss them every one
Those summers in the sun
