    VIET CONG GUERILLAS STRUCK SAIGON'S MAIN GOODS YARD EARLY YESTERDAY (THURSDAY). TEN LOCOMOTIVES WERE DESTROYED IN THE ATTACK AND THREE RAILWAYMEN WERE INJURED.

    THE LOCOMOTIVES WERE BLOWN UP BY SEVEN CHARGES, APPARENTLY SET OFF BY A TIMING MECHANISM. THE BLAST ROCKED BUILDINGS IN THE AREA, ABOUT ONE AND A HALF MILES (2 1/2 KMS) NORTH EAST OF THE CITY CENTRE.
