Memories of a tragic train and car collision seventy years ago

By Shelia Tomkins

When the sound of a train whistle pierces the air as it passes through Guttenberg, resident Barb Leitgen  often reflects on a childhood memory of a horrific car and train collision near St. Mary's Church in Guttenberg.

Leitgen vividly recalls the time, date and place of the accident. "I remember a train calling its whistle on Sunday, June 13, at quarter to ten, in 1946," she said. "I was in St. Mary's Church and we heard a terrible, terrible crash — crunching metal — during the service."
