Himrod, Scene of Serious Freight Wreck on Central Railroad.
A serious freight wreck occurred on the New York Central railroad at Himrod at 2 o'clock yesterday morning. Though there were no fatalities, the damage inflicted on the cars made it of considerable immediate importance to the wrecking crew.
It was what is known as a rear-end collision, in railway parlance. One train was waiting at the station for orders when another heavy train of freight cars crashed into the caboose. The engine was badly damaged and fifteen cars thrown from the track. The tracks were strewn with wreckage and it took practically the entire day to clear them. There is a high embankment near the station and some of the cars were knocked over it.
The engineer of the train which was wrecked claimed that the air brakes would not work. Every member of the train crews is congratulating himself on the miraculous escape. The damage to the railroad property will amount to a large sum.
