Millersburg, OH Train Wreck, Feb 1908

MILLERSBURG, O., Feb. 9. -- Two Pennsylvania passenger trains jumped the track early this morning, one here and one at Howard, about twenty miles southwest of here. No one was hurt.

An open switch is thought to have caused ... the one here about 4 o'clock. That was a northbound train, slightly delayed by the wreck at Howard. All the train except the Pullman left the rails and bumped along over the ties for a while until the engineer could bring it to a halt. It tore up the trackage enough to keep the crew at work most of the day.
