      New Jersey's Deadliest Train Wreck

      The New Jersey History Speaks Lecture Series, co-sponsored by the Historical Society of Moorestown and the Moorestown Library, continues with “The Wreck of the Broker: The Story of New Jersey’s Deadliest Train Wreck,” presented by independent scholar, historian, and author, Gordon Bond.
      On the drizzly evening of February 6, 1951, the Pennsylvania Railroad commuter train known as “The Broker” derailed in Woodbridge, New Jersey, killing 85 and injuring hundreds in what remains the deadliest railroad accident in the state’s history and among the top five in the United States. Gordon Bond authored the definitive book on this tragedy, and he uses eyewitness accounts, news reports, and investigation transcripts to recount the disaster and explore its impact.
