Description

Algonquin College Speaker Series Presents…

Join us on Thursday, February 8, 2018 at 7 p.m. @ the Waterfront Campus to learn about how on December 27, 1942 the Ottawa Valley experienced one of its worst disasters. While stopped at the Almonte train station, a passenger train, known as the Pembroke Local, was struck by a “Troop Train” carrying soldiers. The accident killed 36 people and injured more than 200 more, many of them from Ottawa Valley communities. An inquest into the accident determined there were many factors that contributed to the crash, including poor visibility as a result of a snow and sleet storm. Learn more about this important piece of local history through a partnership with the North Lanark Museum. The presentation will include pictures and video from survivors of the crash as they tell their story of that fateful night.
