Lecture and Book Signing

Hosted by Temple Railroad and Heritage Museum

Join the Temple Railroad & Heritage Museum for a lecture and book signing of Mike Cox’s latest publication, The Train Crash at Crush: America’s Deadliest Publicity Stunt.

Exhaustively researched, this book is the most complete telling of one of America’s wackiest stories—the crashing of two locomotives on September 15, 1896 in a town named Crush, Texas—a town that lasted only for a day. Cox’s book brings to life the characters involved in this marketing stunt by the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad to drum up business at the turn of the century and will appeal to railroad buffs and history fans alike. Lecture starts at 10:00 a.m., with book signing to follow. Books will be available for purchase at the event.
