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.
