Incident Report

Incident on 23rd December 2013

Stormy weather hit the south of England on Monday 23 December.  As the final Up departure from Havenstreet (at 14:55) was near Calloways crossing, the train and a tree branch came into contact.  At the time of writing the circumstances of the incident are still being investigated, but the blow caused nine quarter-lights and one droplight to break on the south side of both LBSCR Third 2416 and Composite 6349.  Regrettably, a number of passengers suffered injuries caused by flying shards of glass

The Rail Accident Investigation Branch were notified.

The damaged carriages were both shunted into the protection of the ‘Train Story’ building on Christmas Eve morning and were replaced by four-wheeled carriages 2343, 2515 and 6378. The same formation remained in place for our traditional ‘Mince Pie Specials’ on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
