Last Saturday No. 1 the cast
bound passenger met with an accident a few miles east of (Van-
brook Out resulted iu the eugiue
and mail car Udnv; thrown down
the bank of the grade, and the
colonist and diner being derailed,
The wreck itself was an extraordinary one. and quite unique as railway wrecks go, but more extraordinary, slill was the wonderful
escape of the imssengers and the
train crew. It happened in this
No. 4 started from the Lauding
on time, but between Creston and
.Moyie lost 25 minutes. It left tin'
latter placo shortly after 8,16 and
was due to reach Cranbrook a few
minutes to four. At ten minutes
to five, a work train engine drawing
the sleeper of No. I  crowded   with
passenger, steamed into the station
bringing the news that the rest of
Ihe train was in the ditch o.1, miles
to the west of the town.
It seems that just as No. 4 rounded the curve ut Loco, a bull ran
out of the bush not twenty yards
from the train. Engiuoer Jas. H.
Caslnke. who was driving No. 84,
the engine attached to the train,
had no time to shut off steam or
apply the brakes, for almost immediately the animal had lieen run
down. At the time, the train as
stated, was travelling at the rate of
2~> utiles au hour and the sudeu Impact on a curve was quite sufficient
to derail the engine.
The next few moments marked
a period of intense excitement.
After leaving the rails. No. S4 ran
over the ties for a distance of a
100 yards and then plunged into
the ditch, followed by the tender
which piled up on top of her iu an
extraordinary fashion. Luckily,
at the moment of derailment, the
couplings which connected the
mail and express car to the tender
snapped, and this coach, together
with the baggage and tourist cars,
instead of following iu the wake of
Ihe engine ran on for twenty yards
and slowly overturned into a ditch.
The tourist car was saved from
complete destruction by coming in
contact with a friendly tree. Nevertheless the car was considerably
strained and damaged al>out the
sides. The mail ami baggage cars
however, were not so fortunate,
They were reduced almost to com-
Iete wrecks. Following the tourist
car was the firstclass coach and
diner, which although it did uot
exactly overturn, left the rails ami
sutl'ered the loss nf its wheels. Tke
only car which remained intact was
the sleeper.
But the most remarkable thing
in connection with the wreck is
the escape of the passengers and
more especially oftho train crew.
Both Engineer Caslako and Fireman A. Johnson went over with
their engine aud yet the engineer
escaped with a bruised eye and the
fireman without a scratch. As for
the passengers, they were oven
mon; fortunate for not a single
case of personal injury was reported. Thore wire at least twenty
jwisHcngers in the tourist cur. and
it is believed that the brief interval
between the snapping of the
couplings aud the moment the car
overturned, enabled the travellers
to jump clear.
After the situation had lieen
summed up Conductor Kiblocko
He must gathered the passengers together
be intelligent and energetic and and crowded them into tho sleeper
mean but-mess. No fritters want-! in which they travelled into Craned, and   woithless  kids  need  uot - brook  drawn  by a  work engine
i Imy to
was standing iu Loco siding. Later
in the evening the station othcUia
made up a special train of spar***
tars and the sleeper, tuul  gent  the
east bomul travellers forward.
The wrecking crew gut to wurk iu
ll very short time after the accident
ami managed to re-rail the tourl-ft
car on Sunday, but it will Ui ttouif
time yet before the last truces uf
the wreck are cleared away.
Traffic has not been interrupted
ml although the main lim* wot
blocked, trains were sent through
Loco siding.
Bridge 210, which is distant sii
and one-half miles tn the ea*-t of
Cruubrook, was the scene on
Thursday hist uf what may b*
termed au awkward wreck. Al-
though no casualties resulted, tht*
accident, nevertheless, fterioutdy
interferred with tmfiiee for tho
space of t wen ly four hours. For h
few days previous to the wreck a
gang of trackmen had been buuy
making preparations fnr pilling
the bridge, which, in railway par*
lance, waa placed "under alow
orders*." consequently, when at h
fe,v moments to twelve nn Thursday morning, a freight train.dntwu
by engine 51 '1. approached the bridg*
engineer Onr+utt slowed down to
four miles an hour. The ]i»couu»-
tive had safely cim--!mi! the hridgw
wheu a sudden jar and the almost
immediate stoppage of the tni*
told the train crew that Munethintf
had gone wrong. InvestigatiuH
showed that the four cam. containing coke for West Kootezwy,
Immediately next to the engiiw
had left the rails, two of them being half through the deck of the
bridge and supjKirteii only by the
trestles beneath. Conductor
(iougeou. who was iu charge of
tin* train at once conveyed the
news to Cranbrook. und a wrecking crew, together with ull ih$
available help whicli Koadnutstef
PooIhu and bridge ami building
Master Stocks could collect, went
quickly To the scene of tke accident. Meantime the jjasseugef
train from the east had ivaehej
Fort Steele, and there waa detained, the railway officials having arranged that No. ^ from the wett
should proceed as far as the bridg*
for a transfer of passengers aod
baggage to Ih* made between th*
two trains. This plan wassucresi*-
fully carried out, although it wv*
not uiilil 7:30 p. in. that the belated travellers from the east wet*
landed in Crnnbrook. The work
of clearing the wreck proc*ed»wi
vigorously through the night, aod
by 4 p. m. on Friday evening tit*

They are muny rumors as to
