Years ago there was a deadly train accident in Fair Lawn at a pasta factory. The train conductor was killed. It was caused by three young boys flipping a train switch.
Does anyone know what happened to the three young boys? What kind of life do they have now? What kind of men are they?
Just curious if they changed their lives and all..
They were Peter, Peter, and Randy .......

It wasnt flipping a switch it was they shoved an I beam into the railroad train tracks and the train went airborne and hit a spagetti factory on the secound floor ive seen crime scene photos there were train cars everywhere like an accordian it looked like someone threw lionel trains against the wall the conductor who was killed had 6 kids the perpetrators were not young boys they were high school students who were tried as adults when I last heard they were still in jail trying to get paroled but haveng trouble with that .

The Kid is a friend of mine and was a bystander hanging out with the crew who did it. He had a hard life but was a brilliant but tormented individual. He was assaulted by his drunkard dad as a kid, he found his dad hanging and cut him down. He also graduated IV LEAGUE and went on to become a stock market analyst and became a millionaire as a result..

Then he made the movie TRAXX and used his OWN MONEY to DO IT and his objective was to DONATE every nickel of proceeds to that conductors family. I LIVED IN THAT TOWN, A 1/4 MILE FROM THE WRECK AND I REMEMBER THE LOUD CRASH TOO.

I ALSO REMEMBER HIM ON TV BEING INTERVIEWED ABOUT THE INCIDENT AND MAKING THE MOVIE, HE WAS PRACTICALLY CRYING..

DON'T CALL HIM DISGUSTING IN FACT DON'T PASS JUDGEMENTS ON ANYONE ULESS YOU HAVE A CLEAN SLATE AND YOU KNOW THE FACTS!!!!

Funny how NONE of you mention the boy of 14 in the engine car who did survive. He ended up in a coma for some time and though he awoke from it he was never the same. He has had to deal with a
life of both physical and emotional pain. Memory and cognition loss.

The "Kid" who was just a bystander didn't even have the guts to meet his gaze and appologize to him when he had a chance.

guess its easier to plead forgiveness from the deseased.

Tony...You have some freaking nerve. He maybe your friend, but there were some of us, like myself, that were PERSONALLY affected from YOUR FRIENDS incident. So if you dont know who Iam and you do not know THE 14 year old kid...and the 6 kids Duffy had I wouldnt make a comment about a person that was involved in a MURDER. Being a bystander would be a perfect opportunity to stop a murder. This incident made it very difficult to go to school and even be home alone.

It is DISGUSTING to think that one has a "cleared slate" to make a new life for themselves, but the person in that train does not have that opportunity.

Tony you can go scratch.

The family of the vicitm should sue the guy making the movie in another case Trantino killed 2 cops avoided the death penalty now that he is out of prison he makes videos where he brags about being a dope addict then when he never said that before just that he didnt remmber what he did from blackouts from drinking he admited he did an armed robbery to get money for drugs [ he has videos in youtube but they are too disgusting to watch ] I dont think he said that before there was a book about that case Night Of the Devil but it wasnt good enough to make a movie out of it

Bear in mind, these youths were the worst that Fair Lawn had to offer in the day. They were, and likely still, all complete scum. Amazing this punk is a millionaire now. There is no justice in this world.

These guys served less than than 2 years, I am glad to hear at least one did something positive with his life.

I went to school with them, although didn't really know them persoally, but I did follow the story as did almost everyone in Fair Lawn at the time.

I remember the boy 14yr old boy... He and I were good friends before the train accident. When he woke up from the Coma he didn't remember me, and all of these years later ,he never got all of those memories back.
