ACCIDENT AT HEST BANK

Post by Angus McIntosh »

The latest issue of the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway magazine carries an article about the 'Sankey Photography Archive Project', in which the archive contains a group of four photographs featuring C.R. wagons involved in an accident at Hest Bank (LNWR - WCML) on 22nd July 1912.
One of the photographs is especially interesting as the wagon being upturned shows the details of the underframe and drawgear springing not normally seen.
The photographs can be found via a search for 'Wagon Derailment Hest Bank' on the Sankey Archive website - www.sankeyphotoarchive.uk . The accident report, which contains details of the Caley wagons can be found on the 'Accident Archive' section of The Railway Archive by searching for 'Hest Bank'
