"A part of the 12.18 p.m. fast train from Bath to Bournemouth left the rails about a mile from Wimborne Junction, while it was running round the Wimborne curve.
No passengers were injured, but the guard, who was travelling in the break-van at the tail of the train, received a severe blow on the head, and only returned to duty on the 2nd instant."
