    All on the New Romney train meet are all accounted for after the train accident this afternoon. Just in case any of you were worried about us. :)

    Not heard of the accident, but since all are ok, we are now free to speculate on specious causes of the accident, are we not? :D

    Loco crashed into a tractor towing a trailer of straw. Driver managed to slow down enough to jump clear and pull passengers out of the derailed carriages. Could have been very bad but looks like the driver did a great job

    As I drove out on my bike There was a van coming in from the Rail accident investigation Board. They treat it as a real railway and the case will be carried out the same.
