Train Wreck at Minter
JANUARY 4TH WEEK 1977
Herbert Warnock, Tobe Gillis and son Clinton, and Gene Muncus were among the crowd to watch the reassembly on many freight cars wrecked at Minter on a freezing cold day. Warnock and the elder Gillis began working on the railroad in the 1940's. Warnock left to become Clerk of Courts, while Gillis had 37 years behind him the picture was made. People came all the way from Vidalia just to see the train wreck.
