"In this case the 11.25 pm. down passenger train from Charing Cross to Dartford passed the Junction home signals at danger, and struck the 10.30 p.m. up train from Dartford, which was travelling from London Bridge to Cannon Street Station.
The collision was, fortunately, not violent, and no one was seriously injured. Twelve passengers in the up train subsequently complained of having been shaken, and in two or three cases were slightly bruised. There were no casualties to railway men."
