Train Blocks Curryville

50 Years Ago

Herald of Jan. 27, 1970

Route 866 traffic was blocked for 2 1/2 hours last Wednesday evening when a Penn Central Railroad locomotive became stalled on the Crossing in Curryville. Glenn F. Guyer of Martinsburg, who operates an excavating business, came to the rescue and pulled thedeisel off the road with one of his bulldozers. The locomotive was being used to place freightcars on sidings at one of the mills in Curryville when the engine stopped. The batteries on it were not powerful enough to get it started again.

The Central High School senior class increased by one member last week when Miss Mairi-Helen MacLean of Johnsonville, New Zealand, arrived in Morrisons Cove. Miss MacLean, 17, is spending a year in the United States upon the invitation of the Roaring Spring Rotary Club. She is residing at the present time with Mr. and Mrs. J. Calvin Lang III and daughters Susan, 17, and Marta, 14, of 715 Spang St., Roaring Spring. Mr. Lang is vice president of the community’s Royary Club. Mairi is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Murdo MacLean.
