A Train-Cows Accident in 1917


From the February 22, 2017, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois)  "Looking Back."

1917, 100 Years Ago

"The Spring valley train was a half hour late in here yesterday morning for the reason that it ran into a herd of cattle shortly after getting started in the morning.

"Three cows were killed and it was said that others are more or less injured but none of them serious."

That's Why Trains Have Those Cow Catchers.  --RoadDog
