TRAIX-WRECKING STORY. An astonishing story was told by Signalman Rowland Ellis Eva ns of a desperate encounter- with train wreckers on the Great Western Rail- way near Llangollen in North V^nles. He stated that while casually v.Iking from Llangollen to Woodlands, he found two men placing sle^/crs across the rails with the object of wrecking ? shortly-expected passenger train. When h" sought to prevent them they attacked him with bludgeons, and lelt him lying on the metals. On recovering he ran for a lamp. and waving this on the line succeeded just in time in stop- ping tiie passenger train. This was Evans's story. His body, however, bore no traces of ill-usage, and no one has seen his alleged assailants. On Saturday several railway and police officials visited Ilaiigolle.), called Evans before them, a-id held a private, investigation that lasted about two hours, In mi interview Evans gave fresh details of his experience. lie said t::at between half-past ten and eleven on Tiiursday he heard a noise on the line, and oca-iug the hedge he dis- tinctly saw two men placing sleepers on th3 down line.
