On their way to Ottawa to report to new jobs this morning two girls, Rita Burns, of Renfrew and Rhoda Scobbie, of Calgary, had a miraculous escape from serious injury or death when the C.P.R. troop train from Petawawa crashed into the rear of the Pembroke- Ottawa local on which they were passengers. The two girls were riding in the end passenger coach which received the full brunt of the crash.
Sitting side by- by- side when the troop train scoped their car, they were thrown into the air and alighted uninjured on opposite sides of the car. Both of the girls were pulled quickly from the wreckage. Miss Burns was one of the few who was lucky enough to find her personal belongings quickly. December 28,1942
