 Today's weather trivia: 28 January 1933: A huge snowstorm in southern New
Brunswick created 3-metre drifts that buried a train engine near Grangeville
and stalled a southbound snowplow from Newcastle in a deep drift. The
largest CNR engine was sent to help clear the tracks without knowing the
exact location of the snow-bound trains. At 8:15 PM the Northern crashed
through the drift, wrecking one train and tragically killing 3 railway men.
