Tuesday morning 'northbound train. No. 704, known as the milk train, ran into an open switch Just south of the station at Central Village. This train, due at 6.42 a. was aJittle late and approached the station going at a fairly good rate of speed. Running over the. switch point, which is about GOO feet south of the station, engine and train ran into the switch and went the entire length of it. This ewitch is used by the Norwich-Taft-vills trolley cars which xun on the steam road from Central Village and is built butting, up against the south end of the station. The locomotive of the train ran over and beyond the rails and nearly into the station platform. The rest of the cars remained on the rails. Passengers were hardly aware of any unusual occurrence except the suddenness of the stop. Word was j Bent xo futnam tor anotner engine and at 8.15 o'clock the train proceeded to Worcester, just an hour and one-half late. This engine made the run from Putnam to Central Village in fourteen minutes a distance of nearly fifteen miles. At 9.30 the wrecker and steam derrick from Midway came and pulled the locomotive upon tha rails. Little damage was done to it. Just how the switch became open was unknown Tuesday. This early car etays on the switch over night at the station and had proceeded toward Norwich when the train ran into the switch. The train could not slacken its speed be cause of the slippery conditions the rails. Trainmen spoke of the fact that had the train been the boat freight, which usually precedes the milk train, things would have been much worse. This is a heavy express freight and would probably have torn through the station before it could be stopped. This freight, however, had been stopped at Plainfleld to leave some cars and had permitted the passenger train to go ahead. Officials are to investigate with a view of ascertaining the cause of the ewitch being open. Shakesperian Recitals. Dr. Edgar C.
