Coal tender leaves rails, delaying train
When the coal tender jumped the tracks a short distance east of Rock Lake, Algonquin Park, yesterday, shortly before noon, the Canadian National passenger train from Scotia to Ottawa was delayed for one hour 20 minutes. Heady work on the part of the engineer prevented more car from leaving the rails.
The derailment occurred while the train was crossing a high embankment. As soon as the tender left the tracks the engineer brought the train to a stop, but not before the tender had plowed along the road bed for several score feet tearing up sleepers and digging deep into the bed.
All the passenger of the train gathered along the embankment and watched the efforts of the train crew to get the tender back on the rails. This they succeeded in doing by the use of "frogs" under the train power, and without the assistance of any wrecking crew.
