In 1927 a pay car for the coal mines was blown up by two men. A large charge was used and the car and occupants were blown apart. More than $27,000 was spread over an area of 700 feet. Almost all of the greenbacks were recovered, however, $6,000 in coin still lies scattered in that particular section of woods located near Wilkes Barre, in the vicinity of Espe Gap.
