        August 21, 1902 - The one o'clock main line car going from Johnstown
        to Gloversville was derailed on North Market Street near Younglove's
        mill by the mud and gravel that had been washed in the tracks. The
        car was delayed only about half an hour before it could proceed to
        Gloversville.

          September 4, 1902 - CARS CRASH - A serious head-on crash on the
          mainline of the Cayadutta Electric road was averted early last
          evening by the prompt action of the two motormen, who applied the
          brakes and reversed their cars, thus checking the collision by which
          the fender of Car No. 2 was smashed and some of the woodwork broken.
          The work car, carrying about 40 laborers to Fonda, was met on the
          little curve at the corner of Main and Cayadutta STreets in the
          village by Car No. 2, filled with passengers northbound. Each
          motorman failed to see the other approaching until only a few feet
          lay between them. Car No. 2 was operated by Motorman Miles Bowdish
          and was in charge of Conductor Sammons while James Nellis was
          operating the work car.
