Three engines did it.
Last Tuesday morning at 8.30 the Stratford train was drawn out of the Union Station, Toronto, in the storm by two engines. When Shakespeare was reached another engine came to the assistance of the two, and their combined efforts dragged the cars with their loads of travel-wearied people into Stratford station. Their arrival was registered at 6 p.m. It took the train nearly ten hours to cover a distance of about ninety miles.
A freight train which left Guelph for Stratford on Tuesday morning was compelled to turn into a siding at Berlin. The distance between the two cities is forty miles, and the time allowed by the freight schedule was about four hours. When the trainmen ran their charge into Berlin the engine was "dead" and the crew had breasted the storm for twenty-one consecutive hours. They went back to Guelph as passengers.
