Extra 1104 - The Story of the Rockport Train Wreck

Steaming fifty people to death, the train wreck of Extra 1104 in 1925 stands today as one of the most disastrous train wrecks in New Jersey. For over 90 years, the complete full story of this tragedy remained largely untold until local filmmaker John General set out to reveal what really happened on the fateful night that put courage, selflessness and pure heroism to a true test. "Extra 1104 - The Story of the Rockport Train Wreck" is the only film to ever tell the full story of the deadliest disaster in Warren County's history that left Rockport, a small rural village with no electricity or medical personnel, shaken for decades.
