Binghamton, NY Train Wreck, Oct 1892

A crew was engaged in switching cars in the west end of the company's yards, when the engine was derailed. A wrecking engine was sent to the scene and through a misunderstanding or carelessness on the part of the engineer, the wrecker crashed into the disabled train. John Maber, who occupied the pilet of the wrecking engine, jumped. He was thrown forward and his brains were dashed out against a rail which he struck head first.
