Orphans Win Toy for Heroism (Sep, 1933)

Wow, that’s some generosity. Six orphans prevent a train from crashing and save 500 lives. So the railroad rewards them with 3 model trains.

Orphans Win Toy for Heroism

STUMBLING, struggling for breath through a terrific thunderstorm nearPassiac,N. J., six orphan boys, waving, screaming desperately stopped an Erie train fifty feet from a washout and saved the lives of 500 passengers. The story of their heroism made front page news throughout the nation, arid as a reward the boys won a railroad of their own. The road has three miniature trains like the one shown in the photo above, and is complete with tracks, switches, signals, miniature stations and other buildings to go along their railroad’s right of way.
