Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Kirtlebridge rail crash was a rail crash that took place at Kirtlebridge railway station in Dumfries and Galloway. On 2 October 1872 the 21:00 night Scotch Express from London Euston, running 1 hour and 50 minutes late left Carlisle at 07:50. It consisted of 18 vehicles pulled by two locomotives. Just north of Kirtlebridge station the Solway Junction was fully interlocked but the station itself was not, nor was the block system in operation. At 07:55 a goods train arrived at the station and began shunting operations. Crossover points were not controlled by the signalman but by ground levers and were moreover 300 yards from the signalbox.show more
