1883: Off the Rails

Yesterday (Friday) morning, as the 7.5 a.m. up train was leaving Aldeburgh Station, the engine left the metals at the points near the ticket platform. Fortunately no great velocity had been attained, so that the damage done was merely the disarrangement of the permanent way. It, however, took four hours’ hard work, with all available help, to put the “iron horse” on his road again.
