This was like putting two locomotives ahead of each other to draw a hand-car.
They knew that it would be impossible to make the necessary speed with a hand-car.
The hand-car was lifted to the track, beyond the telegraph pole, and the journey was resumed.
In a moment the hand-car was off, the men pumping for dear life.
Lighting his pipe, he took his seat on the hand-car and knitted his brows as two colored laborers drove him down the hill.
Before they had gone a half mile they found a hand-car on a siding.
He pointed to some workmen who had a hand-car near the track, not far above him.
Their hand-car, which was also uninjured, was lifted on the track and driven on again.
Wilson and Wood were put on a hand-car and run back to Bridgeport.
They were brought on a hand-car, and I noticed, when I started away, that the car was left there on the track.
