To Open Railroad Crossing - 1913

DELMAR, DEL June 11 - Albert H. Hearn, John C. Killiam, and W. Scott Parker have been appointed to a commission by the Delmar, Maryland town council to open a crossing over the New York , Philadelphia and Norfolk railroad at Chestnut street, Delmar.  It has always been a difficult matter to obtain street crossings over the railroad in Delmar because of the numerous tracks in the railroad yard being within the town limits.  The railroad company has always resisted the effort of the people to obtain crossings and on one occasion kept cars standing on the desired crossing for days.
