1854 - Fatal Railroad Accident.

News
Troy, Tuesday, Jan. 3. The first train from Rutland, on the Albany and Northern Railroad, this morning broke an axle near Schaghticoke Point, while on the long bridge. A brakeman was instantly killed; but although the cars were completely demolished, none of the passengers, some sixty in number, were injured. The track was all torn up, and had it not been for the extension rail, the cars would all have been thrown into the river.
