Derailment north of New Southgate - 17.7.1948

From photographer Ben Brooksbank:
Owing to poor maintenance of the track after the War, the overnight 21.50 Aberdeen - King's Cross derailed at 70 mph north of New Southgate station. The engine became detached from the train and slid along 100 yards. The fireman was killed and the driver injured, but the passengers were relatively unscathed. The locomotive is A2/1 Pacific 60508 'Duke of Rothesay' and the driver was the celebrated Bill Hoole.
