Warmington, OH Train Wreck, Nov 1894


Trainmen Killed in a railroad Wreck Near Massillon.

MASSILLON, O., Nov. 17.--Two trains came together at noon on the Cleveland, Lorain & Wheeling railway, four miles south of here. The tracks are blocked.

The wreck occurred at Warmington switch. Owing to an error about the orders the Massillon yard engine dashed into a southbound coal train. Engineer Rosenberry, of Lorain, of the southbound train, was killed outright. His fireman and brakeman, names unknown, were probably fatally injured. The two engines were hopelessly ruined, and have fallen over on the Wheeling & Lake Erie main track, blocking that road also.
