Mallet Engine Retracked
The big Mallet engine that was wrecked at Graham on the Norfolk and Western Monday morning was retracked yesterday afternoon. Three steam derricks were used in pulling the engine to the temporary track provided for it, the third wrecking outfit being brought here from Radford Monday night after it was found that the two derricks were unable to raise the engine. Probably 200 men were engaged in the work of retracking the Mallet, and it required the greater part of two days to accomplish it. It was not thought the engine was seriously damaged.
[200 men?]
