Twelve cars in a 99-car train of the Reading Railroad left the tracks at Tamanend near Quakake, at 10:30 p.m. today and piled-up, completely blocking the tracks. Considerable damage was done to seven tank cars, box cars, and one gondola, and several tons of wheat spilled out of the cars. The train was bound for Philadelphia from Newberry.
