A visit to Frodingham shed: On shed
John Thickitt  
Mon 11/01/1965 D1734 82A   D1734 was the the head of the 03:56 Saltney - Pontypool Road Class 5 freight, consisting of 46 wagons, 775 tons in tow. At the top of the 1 in 100 downhill gradient at Coton Hill, the driver failed to obey a stop sign and his train careered out of control down the hill entering the 'Up' goods loop at speed, crashed through the trap points at the yard exit then, despite an emergency brake application which reduced the speed to about 20mph, derailed and continued for a further 72 yards, having crashed through Coton Hill (South) signal box, demolishing it entirely. The driver was badly injured but the signalman was, unfortunately, killed.
The MoT report can be seen here.

Tue 04/05/1982 47522 HO   While working the 13:35 Glasgow Queen Street - Aberdeen, this locomotive was in a serious collision with a tractor at a level crossing at Forteviot, just south west of Perth. The locomotive was recovered and rebuilt at considerable cost (thought to be about 200,000), partly due to the fact that it was an ETH fitted engine and the cost of equipping another loco with ETH as a replacement was not desirable. Amazingly, there were no fatalaties.
