Big Mallet Wrecked
Graham railroad trackmen were called to Flat Top yesterday to assist in repairing the track damaged by the wreck of the Mallet engine that was turned over on the yard there Thursday. The wreck was similar to that at Graham several months ago when the first wreck of a Mallet engine on the road occurred. In the latter accident, however, it required three derricks to retrack the wrecked engine where one was sufficient to handle the big machine at Flat Top yard. The engineer and fireman jumped when the engine started over the bank and escaped injury.
