The locomotive pictured here, 4-4-0 Rob Roy was pulling the up Mail from New Milford when it ran into the back of a cattle train on 5 November, 1868. The broad gauge line was operated under the time interval system and the cattle train had stopped in the section. Thirty-six cattle were killed and reports suggest that between 3 and 8 men travelling in the rear vehicle were killed.
