A singular accident occurred on the
N. P. yesterday, to Ho. 3 at Geneva.
The engine and four cars left the

torn from the hose on a passing engine
tank becoming caught in a frog and
spreading the points of the switch.
The engine which caused the trouble
had passed over the track a short
time previously and was being dead
headed over the division. The brass
coupling was smashed and wedged in
tight between the point of the switch
and the rail. No one was hurt by the

operations were to be done. It is the

road men remember to have occurred
on this line.
