Bradford, 1899-11-26—About one o'clock this morning 5 cars of a southbound lumber train separated, probably 3 miles from this place, from the front cars. On reaching this depot the first section stopped for the purpose of shunting on to the switch. The back section which had been following in the rear quite unknown to the train crew, crashed into the front one. The collision derailed one car and broke two others into kindling wood, as well as tearing up about 50 feet of track. All the men fortunately escaped without injury. It was lucky for the G.T.R. that it occurred at this spot, as the trains were to pass by using the switch. A wrecking train came down from Allandale with a large gang of workers and the debris was cleared away by 4 o'clock in the afternoon. The two broken cars were burned.
