On a fateful morning in 1918, a train travelling from the station collided head on with another train at a section of track called Dutchman's Curve, tragically killing 101 people. Spectators came in droves to see the aftermath of the accident. Witnesses described seeing badly burned bodies scattered amongst the wreckage and those whose remains were completely torn apart from the impact. The injured and dead were brought back to the station where a makeshift morgue and hospital were made.
