About 60 family members and friends of the men attended to see an engraved memorial plaque unveiled and dedicated. Many memories of the men were shared and hundreds of flowers were left to rest at the base of the plaque. The plaque is located 2.5 miles east of Poland Covered Bridge in Jeffersonville. CAMBRIDGE, Oct 10 – Three men were killed about 1 p.m. today in Cambridge where a freight train of the St. Johnsbury and Lamoille County Railroad struck a motorized handcar head on. The dead are: Walter Irving Burnor, 36 of Cambridge, Frederick Churchill, 50, of Jeffersonville, and Nelson Henry Nolan, 54, also of Jeffersonville. All three were section hands on the railroad. State Police said the men were going north on the rails in the open workmans’ handcar and the freight train was traveling south, when they crashed on a sharp curve about two miles out of Cambridge junction and six and one-half miles from Johnson. The train, which was a way freight traveling the line two or three times a week, was a regularly scheduled one, but does not follow a close schedule, usually switching frequently along down the line. Investigators said the three men, experienced workers on the railroad for many years, probably expected the train, but believed they would make a siding about three quarters of a mile north of where they crashed, before the train came through. The troopers said the men could not have seen the train in time to jump from the handcar because of the curve. Nor would they have heard it because the handcar is noisy and Diesel-engined train silent. (Cindy Locke photo)
