Watch Out! Railroad Crossing 

This collection of photographs shows the folly of trying to beat a train at a grade crossing. One thing we all know is this never ends well. Here are 5 images found in the Max Collection that show various accidents from the 1930’s of people who made it, and some who didn't, trying to beat the train.

Don't forget there are two weeks left, so come by the Denver Public Library Exhibit on the 7th level, Artistry of Railroads.
