Danville, VA (not Danville PA)
It was a serious wreck of the Old 97 Locomotive on a trestle bridge.
The Wreck of the Old 97 was an American rail disaster involving the Southern Railway mail train, officially known as the Fast Mail, while en route from Monroe, Virginia, to Spencer, North Carolina, on September 27, 1903.
Due to excessive speed in an attempt to maintain schedule, the train derailed at the Stillhouse Trestle near Danville, Virginia, where it careened off the side of the bridge, killing 11 men.
Only a fraction of the mail had survived, including a large case filled with canaries that managed to escape and fly to safety.
The event launched many a song about the tragedy.https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wreck_of_the_Old_97#Ballad
