Cars Derailed in Franklin
Franklin-Rail traffic on the Lehigh and Hudson Railroad
was tied up last Wednesday when two cars on the Allentown to Warwick
freight train were derailed at Franklin Junction. Both Lehigh and the
N. Y. S. & W. Railroad Tracks (whose line runs parallel to the Lehigh
at this point) were torn up. The spur running into the New Jersey Zinc
Company plant was also ripped out. The small signal shack in the photo
was struck by the springing rails and moved two feet off its foundation.
No one was hurt in the accident.
