Kiwanis Club of Tryon member Denny Rook presents a book in honor of speaker Frank Ezell on Wednesday, Jan. 23.

Ezell of Hub City Railroad offered a presentation to the club about history of area railroad lines, including some of the more hair-raising tales of fatal wrecks, washed away tracks and runaway trains.
