the plaque on the left reads:
This mural depicts a train mishap that occurred on May 27, 1953. The Canadian National Railway's First Lady of the Mogul Fleet No 88 was leading with 3506 as pilot. The coal tender 'split the switch' after the engine had passed over it and tried to move onto a siding. Both engines overturned with Mogul 88 lying on the lawn at the north-east corner of Ferguson and Rebecca Sts. None of the crew were injured and damage was slight.
