Freight Train Goes Into One at Gas
tonia There Were Others.
There was a' washout on the
Southern at Gaston ia Friday night
and as a result traffic was somewhat
delayed Saturday. No. 36, the
north boun1 fast mail, was several
hours' late.
No. 74, fast freight coming
north went.into the. washout, about
thirteen cars iroing down.
We learn that a white ramp
on the train was hurt hut no one
The second section of the South
ern's fast freight train, No. 73, on
its way south ran into a washout
at a branch two miles from Con
cord early " yesterday morning.
. The engine and two 'cars cleared
the washout, when the track swayed
down, breaking the coupling be
tween the second and third cars
from the engine and dividing the
.train into two parts. As the col
ored fireman felt the track giving
away, he jumped from the engine,
and escaped unhurt. The engi
neer held on to the throttle and
was knocked against the side Of
his cab, sustaining slight bruises
about the head. , . ,
Neither the engine nor the cars
composing the train went down.
This morning's Charlotte Observer
says the injury to the track proved,
upon examination to be such that
it could be easily and quickly re
paired and the cars all put back
on the track in running condition.
So the wrecking train, which was
making its way from Gastonia,
was telegraphed for, and started
immediately to the scene of the
The wrecking train proceeded
cautiously from Charlotte toward
Concord and met with no serious
obstruction until it reached a long
till near Coddle Creek, about three
miles south of Concord, and one
mile from the washout mentioned
above when another washout was
discovered which , proved to be
about 80 feet long and GO feet
deep. Rocks weighing more than
a ton were carried down the ravine
some 200 yards. This washout,
being much more serious than the
one nearer Concord, was (set to
work on first.
As a result of these washouts,
all passenger trains over the
Southern, both from the North
and the South, have been running
by way of Statesville since yester
day morning. An extra passen
ger and mail train was operated
between Salisbury and Concord
yesterday and today.
It was thought that the track
would be repaired so trains could
be running between Salisbury and
Charlotte this afternoon.-
