- “On Christmas Day, 1848, the last rails were laid over the Cos Cob Bridge, thereby supplying the last link needed to complete the railroad from New Haven to New York,” according to the Stamford Historical Society Web site. “The first trial run was made on that day.”
Editors of two newspapers reported on the event. William H. Holly, Esq., founder of the Stamford Sentinel and a guest on the first trial run, wrote: “The train had to remain at Cos Cob Bridge some three hours for the last rails to be laid over it and the delay gave ample opportunity to the people to come and witness the wonderful feat. The general impression among them seemed to be, that the first train that attempted to cross this pass would also be the last.”
Edgar Hoyt, editor of the Stamford Advocate, wrote: “The citizens of the village as well as the horses, cattle, etc., were nearly frightened out of their propriety … by such a horrible scream as was never heard to issue from any other than a metallic throat. Animals of every description went careening round the fields, snuffling the air in their terror.”
