SOUTHLAND : Circus Train Derails in Anaheim

<i> From Times staff and wire service reports</i>

The Greatest Show on Earth caused the greatest commuting headache in Anaheim as six circus train cars derailed this morning, blocking Katella Avenue during rush hour.

About 75 performers and crew of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus were aboard the cars when they derailed about 5 a.m. on the Southern Pacific Railroad tracks north of Katella and just east of the Santa Ana Freeway. No one was injured, and none of the railroad cars carried circus animals.
