In the early morning hours of November 16, 1901, tragedy struck as a southbound train collided head-on with a northbound locomotive. The collision claimed the lives of both firemen, leaving an irreplaceable void in the hearts of their loved ones. One driver was severely injured, teetering between life and death. The impact unleashed chaos, scattering bullock, copper ore, and flour in its wake.
A solemn memorial now stands, reminding all who see it of the sombre event. It serves as a tribute to the lives lost and forever altered by that tragic collision. Its presence urges reflection, honouring the fallen and reminding us of the fragile thread that connects humanity. In remembrance, solace is found, and a safer future is sought.
