Remarks & Notes 
The crew of a mine run were all on the ground looking at the results of a practical joke on the engineer. While working the B&O interchange at Tunnelton, one of the trainmen strapped about 10 track torpedoes to the rail, in close succession. I must admit, it was an interesting display when he ran over them. I vividly remember the noise, smoke and resulting brake application.
