Train Wreck Grave Obelisk

On the anniversary of this train wreck we visited several sites associated with it. The cemetery with the mass grave obelisk is at the end of Grove Drive, a small residential street and easy to miss. We did not see any signs for the cemetery itself. Once inside the cemetery there are signs pointing the way to the obelisk.
