"On the evening of the 26th ultimo, the 1.30 pm. passenger train from London, due at Sandwich at 6 o'clock, arrived at that station at 6.10; and instead of running along the down line to the station platform, passed through the points above described to the up line, and came into collision with some loaded waggons which were standing on it. The passenger train consisted of engine, tender, five carriages, and a horse box, and the whole train ran upon the up line without any part of it having been thrown off the rails; but about eight of the passengers were injured by the concussion, though, fortunately, none of them to a serious extent."
