Two Trains Delayed
Train No. 15 met with an accident yesterday morning, as the train started to leave Elkhorn, which caused a delay of about an hour. The brake rigging on the engine became loose and dropped and the engine had to be stripped of the rigging, which was placed on the tender, while the engine limped on to Williamson, where repairs were made. On Sunday No. 4 pulled out a drawhead on the baggage car at Switchback, and the car had to be set off and brought to this city later. Both accidents occurred while the trains were starting with the result that the damage was slight, and outside of the wait the passengers experienced no inconvenience.
