Northern Chief leads Black Prince across
Botolphs Bridge Road on their way to Dymchurch. 7th October 2001.
|This is the site of the fatal accident in August 2003, when a local car driver ignored the warning lights and crossed in front of a train.
Remember these locomotives weigh from 5tons (The Bug) to 9.5tons (Black Prince), and then there is the train behind it...
Trains can not stop like a car, It's down to a thing called 'Inertia' & trains have a lot more inertia than cars.
A site in memory of the train driver can be found here.
