Not issued, no number, stamps, signatures or coupons. Begun in 1867 by Connecticut entrepreneur David Lyman, the New Haven, Middletown and Willimantic Railroad Company began service from New Haven to Middletown in 1870, built a drawbridge across the Connecticut River at Middletown, and reached Willimatic in 1873. Unfortunately, the construction was much more expensive than anticipated. The company was unable to pay the interest on their bonds, went into bankruptcy, and was taken over by the Boston and New York Air Line Railroad in 1875.
