Trolley issue 1912 - SIGNAL CAP STARTS PANIC ON TROLLEY Explosive...
SIGNAL CAP STARTS PANIC ON TROLLEY Explosive Placed on Track Just as Crowd Was Leaving Mt. Holly Park Carlisle, Pa., July 27 A big carload of Bedford Shoe Company employes on an outing was thrown into a panic and a big piece of one of the wheels of the front truck of one of the big cars of the Cumberland Valley Railway Company's line at Holly Park was blown off when the car struck a torpedo signal shortly after eight o'clock. The car with a trailer was just leaving the park heavily loaded with passengers returning from an outing at the park during the day, when the front trucks struck the railroad signal placed on the track. Instantly there was a flash of fire, a loud report, frightened passengers, a broken wheel and a disabled car. It is believed the torpedo was placed on the tracks by some person mls-chieviously inclined. Detectives say they have learned of the guilty persons and the trolley officials will bring action.
