Bad Day At Table Rock In 1908

From Table Rock Nebraska Historical Society Page
Saw this on their historical society page and thought it would fit for Monday.

Nebraska Table Rock Argus Oct 8 1908.  Last Tuesday morning while at work around the engines in the round house, foreman J A Barnes met with quite an accident.  He had built a fire in no 119’s engine and had gone over to the next stall to do some work on the switch engine.  He had not worked very long when he noticed the other engine was in motion,  He tried to stop the runaway but before he could gain the cab entrance the monster had started through the back end of the round house.
