"In this case a L. & Y. goods train, which was travelling north from Preston on the down Fleetwood line, came into collision with a L. & N.W. light engine, which was standing on the line waiting to set back into the engine shed road.
The collision resulted in shock or minor injury to the driver of the light engine and the fireman and guard of the goods train. Both engines were damaged."
