Prompt Action And Courtesy Appeeciated.
In reference to an accident to the Main Trunk train on 10th August through an axle breaking, appreciation of the prompt action taken by the driver and fireman to bring the express to a standstill when the accident occurred is expressed in a testimonial signed by about 60 passengers on the derailed train. A tribute is also paid to the kindness and consideration of the guard who made it his first duty to see to the safety of the passengers. The members of the train crew were Driver G. B. Munro, Fireman J. G. Heavey, and Guard A. Johnston.
