A severe derailment near Auburn, New York destroys three railroad cars but remarkably kills no-one

Passengers and crew of a New York Central passenger train had a fortunate escape when a broken rail on a curve derailed three passenger cars and sent them down a twelve foot embankment about a mile and a half from Auburn, New York.  The cars suffered heavy damage but remarkably no-one was killed or fatally injured, although some passengers suffered severe bruising and broken bones.  (By John Osborne)
