Derailment involving Class 104

Info from Ian Fleming and Mick Nicholson

In the final week of the old mechanical cabin. Trains were being hand signalled, the Class 104 (59226 closest) ‘split’ a set of wrongly clamped points. The photographer said: “Within hours the mess was cleaned up and normal working soon resumed, today it would be a ‘scene of crime’ and the job stopped for a week”! Mick Nicholson.
