      From the Bob Bedford clipping file:

      September 7, 1896 - About 4 o'clock yesterday afternnon the electric
      car enroute to Fonda, when turning the corner of Water and North
      Market Streets, was thrown from the track. More than half an hour
      was consumed by the officials before the rear trucks [sic] were
      replaced and the car proceeded on its journey.

      [This is one of several recorded derailments at this location. Bad
      track? Bad truck(s)? Bad luck?]
