  The train that crashed did not carry soildiers. In fact it wasn't until shortly after the war that rail line was completed all the way to Lafayette. The train was transporting mostly grain (wheat and corn) from local elevators to Chicago.
On October 3rd a judge in Indianapolis ordered that prisoners be transferred from Marion county to Lafayette. On October 23 twelve prisoners were shackled and placed into a common box car guarded by a single armed
A hot box on that car caused the train to derail. It also caused the boxcar to ignite. The guard escaped but all 12 shackled prisoners died.
That was about 150 years ago. Local residents claim that every year on October 23rd they can still hear the prisoners' ghosts screaming and begging to be unshackled so they could escape the fire.

Today the rail line is gone but a working grain elevator still operates where the rail line crossed the intersection near the post office.
