"In this case, as the 1.50 p.m. passenger train from Leeds to Hull, consisting of an engine, tender, and five vehicles, was entering the station on No. 4 platform line, it came into collision with a light engine near the platform starting signal of that line. The passenger tram at the time of the collision was fortunately travelling at a low rate of speed, and the light engine had been reversed and was just starting backwards. Both engines were slightly damaged, and three passengers in the train have notified the Company of personal injuries sustained. None of these, however, appear to be of a very serious description."
