Sec. 19. At any time after an attempt to acquire title by appraisal of damages or otherwise,
if it shall be found that the title thereby attempted to be acquired is defective,
the rail carrier may proceed anew to acquire or perfect the same in the same manner
as if no appraisal had been made. At any stage of such new proceedings, the court may authorize the rail carrier,
if in possession, to continue in possession, and, if not in possession, to take possession
of and use such real estate during the pendency and until the final conclusion of
such new proceedings; and may stay all actions and proceedings against the rail carrier,
or any officer, agent or workman of the rail carrier, on account thereof, on the rail
carrier paying into court a sufficient sum, as the court may direct to pay the compensation
therefor when finally ascertained; and in every such case, the party interested in
such real estate may conduct the proceedings to a conclusion, if the rail carrier
delays or omits to prosecute the same.
