"The 12.44 p.m. up express passenger train from Lincoln to Boston was approaching Langrick Station at high speed when it became almost completely derailed. The engine itself remained on the rails, but its lender and the following six vehicles were derailed all wheels. The train was lightly loaded and there were fortunately no serious casual ties, eight passengers suffering minor injuries and shock."
