This "train story" was originally written by Professor Lyndon Irwin, with editing and additional writing and direction by Bob Miano. I particularly like the sound design that includes Antonin Dvorak's famous "Largo" theme from his Symphony No. 9, Op. 95 mixed with church bells. We included this sad and perhaps shocking story in our documentary about the 1904 World's Fair because we felt it was important to present more than just the typical "fun" accounts of the Fair. We wanted our documentary to also be an educational glimpse at how different the world was in 1904. The documentary won several Emmy® Awards from National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences - Mid-America, including one for writing.
