Runaway Railroad Car, 1889

The New York Herald, August 16, 1889

When this event occurred the railroad was still at ground level in East Orange and in Roseville. Later, the Roseville part of the Morris and Essex railroad would be put in a "cut" i.e. in a trench to have fewer streets where there were railroad crossings. Still later, in 1921, the railroad through the Oranges would be elevated for the same reason.
