Supply Car Burned

The Norfolk & Western supply car which supplies oil to the
stations along the line for the signal lamps, caught fire on the
Lynchburg & Durham division Tuesday afternoon and before the flames
could be extinguished was entirely consumed. Owing to the inflammable
nature of the contents it was only a few moments before the whole car
was enveloped in flames. No. 3 was delayed three hours waiting for
the connection.
