Description: She was at a crossroads and whichever path she chose would ruin someone’s life. Bulgarian born Natasha worked for the railroad as a switch operator. In school, she learned some English and acquired a pen pal living in Bend, Oregon. Even after she married, she stayed in touch with her pen pal, who often sent her small gifts. One of the most recent gifts was a pair of Gabby Maria Scorpio Crew Socks, to celebrate her October birthday. As a switch operator, Natasha’s responsibility was to keep the rail lines on the bridge over the Wiesen River open. There was a second line over an older bridge used for light weight freight trains, but it could not hold the weight of modern passenger trains. Natasha often took her four year old son Daniel to the switch house with her. At 3:30 every afternoon, a passenger train would cross the Wiesen River Bridge. On this day, she could not find Daniel; frantic searching located him walking along the tracks, out on the bridge. The 3:30 p.m. train was approaching, and there was not time to rescue Daniel. She had to make a quick decision. She could switch the passenger train to the secondary track, or let it continue on the main line. She made her choice.
