Engine Was Ditched, Engineer Was Killed

[Waterford Star, July 30, 1896]

On Tuesday of last week a T.H.&B. engine was ditched about a mile and a half out from Welland and the engineer was killed. The engine has since then remained in the ditch until Sunday, when the M.C.R. wrecking crew with the steam derrick went down and lifted it out.
