Loral Clinton freight No. 82 on

street crossing about 9:30 thii
morning, and although one of th
largest and most powerful cnginei
on the road was pulling it, all ef
forts to move the train, consisting
of some 30 cars, proved unavailing.
After trying for nearly half an
hour? two additional engines were
pressed into service and with one
locomotive at the head and two
pushing from behind, the train was
gotten under way and taken across
the bridge to the Iowa side, whera
it began its run.
