June 16 – On this day in Montana History in 1888 the first train robbery in Montana history occurred near Livingston. Robbers used a signal torch at night to convince the engineer that there was danger on the track. When the train ground to a stop, the robbers boarded and held the passengers hostage for an hour and twenty minutes while they took about $600 from a safe. No one was injured in the robbery.
