"Monmouth, Ills. Jan. 4 - Four section men were instantly killed by a Burlington passanger train this morning while going to work on a hand car. The train was concealed by steam from a freight train on a siding.
The dead are:
James McGrath, foreman
Until relatively recent years, there were 3 sets of tracks which began west of Monmouth and continued into town. The center tracks, used for switching purposes, have now been removed. These center tracks were probably those cited as the siding in the article.
