Cheers for the info.

Heard he had to be cut out.

Poor Man.


Yes. Poor bloke. Odd that the signalling and back up system did not prevent this. It will all come out in the wash.

Getting a bit pissed off with all these volcanoes and earthquakes going off down here.

Pesky bloody things.

Is that what the strange glow on the horizons all about.


Bet you wish you had taken that Volcano insurance now.

Yes. Dammit. Just rang up my insurer and asked about it. For some reason I couldn't get any sense out of the bloke. Just kept laughing hysterically until he put the phone down on me. The swine.

Which is why I am asking you. You are "boots on the ground".

So, the story link hasn't been updated with that info.

here is what I see...

From your link


A Network Rail spokesperson said on Sunday: "At around 7pm this evening, the rear carriage of the 1708 Great Western Railway service from Portsmouth Harbour to Bristol Temple Meads derailed after striking an object on its approach to Salisbury station. "The derailment knocked out all of the signalling in the area. "Subsequently, the 1720 South Western Railway service from London Waterloo to Honiton then collided with the Bristol train. "There are reports of injuries and the emergency services are on site along with railway first responders."

It's maybe a little early to know the reason for the accident just yet.

The UK experience very heavy rain fall not that long ago which may have contributed to the cause of the accident.

Or it may well have been human error, although that's not supposed to be able to happen.

Just need to wait and see what the investigation turns up.

Two trains collide and nobody dies all the same, that's a miracle in itself.

My link to the BBC article was timed this evening.

So is up to date.

Not what you posted?

I will be patient.


a reply to: Oldcarpy2

thank you for that. as you're closer to the situation, I'm certain you have better access to up to date news.
I don't trust the US mockingbird media.

still, just what did cause this?

Simple accident?

They do happen.



Terrible thing obviously, but it’s not really ATS thread material, a train bump isn’t particularly alternative.

So two trains hitting one another is not news?

You realise you are in the Alternative News forum?

It is if some on here try to suggest it's terrorism, sabotage or due to volcano/earthquakes etc.

My point it’s just news, not exactly alternative is it? It’s barely news on the local Herald. Unless you have footage of Bruce Willis climbing out unscathed with Sam MF Jackson looking on?

I'm so sorry there was not enough death, carnage, and mayhem, for your liking.

Two trains collide, and the driver has to be cut from the cab, never mind the miracle than no one was killed would seem to qualify as News.

As to the forum placement, i think you may find its fine, else it would be moved by a mod.

Looks like the 2nd train tried to stop but the wheels slid:

BBC News - Salisbury train crash: Service ran through red light after wheel slip
www.bbc.co.uk...

Probably the dreaded leaves on the line?

No earthquakes or volcanoes involved, apparently.

Thanks for the update.
Wheel slippage? is that code for something? are the rails and wheels too slick that the breaks didn't work right?

Pretty much wet leaves coming off the trees coz its Autumn get on the steel rails and the Train slips along or even off the track.

That just seems like an implausible explanation.

I would think that the weight of the train, and the breaking would tear the leaves, leaving wheel to rail contact.
I am no train expert, so maybe leaves can let train slip, I just find it hard to believe.
