Circus Train Wreck


ISC believes Alexander Finn was riding with The Wild West Show that was traveling on the train that crashed in one of the deadliest circus train wrecks in history outside of Atlanta Georgia in 1913. Our theory is based on the fact that he was gung-ho to use trucks--and avoid trains--to transport the carnival acts he assembled in Finn's Overland Show in 1918.
