The Astill family lived near the Roseville railyard for years. On April 28, 1973, a naval ammunitions train transporting 7000 bombs bound for Vietnam caught fire and triggered a series of massive explosions. Astill recalls her own experience during a disaster that damaged more than 5000 structures and destroyed the small town of Antelope.
