The Birdtail Creek train disaster - 50 years later

https://www.winnipegfreepress.com/local/catastrophic-bridge-collapse-482476793.html
My column in today's Winnipeg Free Press looks back at the Birdtail Creek train disaster of 1968 that killed three men and shook the railroading community in two provinces.

Fifty years later, family members talk about eh tragedy and I discover that a scheduling change that night prevented what would have been the deadliest train disaster in Canadian history.
