Passengers Given a Scare
Train No. 2, when pulling into Northfork yesterday, had a draw head [sic] pulled out from one of the coaches and a number of passengers who were standing on the platform of the car narrowly escaped injury. The passengers had come out on the platform so as to leave the car in a hurry and were given a terrible scare when the crunching of the wood and iron announced the letting go of the drawhead [sic]. The car was set out and will be repaired.
