Maniwaki Train Off The Track At Wakefield
WAKEFIELD (Special) The Maniwaki bound CPR train was delayed for only a few minutes here last night when the front wheels of the locomotive left the tracks at the station.
The mishap occurred as the train was pulling away from the depot. Slippery rails were blamed for the accident. An emergency crew assisted in setting the wheels back on the rails, and the train continued before passengers were made aware of the cause of the slight delay. No one was hurt.
