Ealing Broadway - Derailment 2nd March 2016 - RAIB report

Unread postby John Webb » Mon Dec 5, 2016 10:50 am

The RAIB have just issued their report into the derailment (at slow speed and without injuries). I mention it here as there is a good deal of signalling interest in the report - see https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/574435/R242016_161206_Ealing_Broadway.pdf.

In summary a TC failure late at night and communications problems between signallers and the line controllers at different locations led to a point not being set correctly for the train to safely proceed.
