HC Deb 27 July 1897 vol 51 c1239

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether the accident at Yeovil Junction, London and South Western Railway, was caused by any defect in the engine: and whether he has any information to show whether the new kind of engine reported to have been used was suitable for working on a branch line of the nature of that between Yeovil Junction and Yeovil Town Station?


An inspecting officer of railways was appointed to inquire into the causes of this accident, but I have not yet received his report.
