    I found this article while researching Frisco train wrecks. It is said to be the worst recorded wreck ever of a Frisco passenger train meeting a troop train out of Fort Sill, OK near the town of Kelleyville, OK. This is the attachment. You will need MS Word to read it.
    WARNING THE ARTICLE IS VERY DESCRIPTIVE!!:(

    There are photos in the Sapulpa Historical Museum of this wreck and some others in the area. It was horrible indeed.

    The below web site has been floating around for sometime. If it has been posted here then my pardons. But it has a detailed study of the Kellyville wreck plus several other Frisco wrecks. Apparently this was a study conducted of failures using train order and time table operations. It is good reading for those that like to operate using timetable/train order methods. It may take a while to download but worth waiting for.

    This was a really sad story. Those poor people. I remember having it drilled into my head and safety rules covered over and over and over again during my time in rail service. I as always told that railroad rules were written in BLOOD. Anyone who dont believe it, needs to READ THIS. It hits the heart with a pretty good thump.
