Does anyone know if there is a list anywhere of all aboard when this happened? I am searching for a relative.

Hi

Just wanted to comment that I am one of the survivors of this train wreck. According to my parents, I was traveling with my mother and my grandmother on my dads side. I was two months old and in later years I was told of the train wreck. We were traveling to meet my father who was serving in the Marine Corps in California. Mother and grandma said they remembered the train stopping for a long period of time and then suddenly starting again and traveling on to California. My father heard of the wreck while he was waiting for us at the depot in California and did not know if we were part of the dead or alive until the three of us walked up to him at the depot. I am 72 years old now and with the internet available I searched for the story I was told as I was growing up. Thank you for offering the evidence needed to support the story I was told over the last 60 years.
