RAIB made aware of two incidents

The RAIB has said it is aware of two incidents that took place yesterday — both of which appear to involve derailed trains.

The first is a train at Heaton Depot which caused widespread reports of delays. On this, a spokesperson confirmed they were still evaluating what was the next step: “The RAIB has been notified of an derailment which occurred yesterday at Heaton depot,” they said.

“RAIB has requested the railway to secure evidence relating to the derailment, this will be reviewed by the Branch and the appropriate course of action decided in the coming days.”


Meanwhile, another incident, which took place the same day was spotted by social media. Images appear to show a train that is also not on the track.

The RAIB confirmed that this incident, at Cambridge Carriage sidings, was something it was aware of but was not making any further enquiries.
