9780747813712: Railway Accidents (Shire Library)

Though trains are one of the safest forms of transport, train accidents always make headline news. Their history is, in many ways, the history of technological development and learning. Early incidents like the felling of William Huskisson MP by Stephenson's Rocket in 1830 led to the reporting systems we know today, while within 50 years safer signalling and braking methods had been made mandatory. Greg Morse charts these changes, taking the story on through the twentieth century, which saw advances in track design and train protection systems, but which ended with a stark reminder that accidents always have more than one cause.

About the Author:

Greg Morse is a writer and railway historian, the author. He was also instilled with a love of trains at an early age. Growing up in the Great Western town of Swindon in the 1970s, he witnessed the end of the celebrated diesel hydraulics and the birth of the Inter-City 125s. He has written many books and articles on railway history and is now privileged to work for the industry he loves as an Operational Safety Specialist.

Review:

“The gruesome subject of train crashes never ceases to fascinate and it is important that publishers continue to keep the topic in the public eye in order to educate new readers into the importance of maintaining a safe railway. Greg Morse is a rail industry professional who will be well known to RM readers as a writer of safety-related articles and in this small but informative book, he provides a brief overview of some of the worst crashes in British history.” ―The Railway Magazine

Descripción Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Britain s rail network is now among the safest in the world, but the journey that brought it to that point has been long and eventful. Early incidents like the felling of William Huskisson MP by Stephenson s Rocket (1830) showed how new ideas could bring new dangers; yet from disaster came new safety measures, and within fifty years better signalling and braking methods had been made mandatory. The twentieth century saw accident repeatedly lead to action and further advances in rolling stock, track design and train protection systems. Greg Morse charts these changes through the events that helped to prompt them, including the Armagh collision (1889) and the Harrow Wealdstone disaster (1952). He ends with a railway approaching a new golden age in the 1980s - yet with the tragedy at Clapham Junction (1988) offering a solemn reminder against complacency.
