"In this case, the 10.10 a.m. passenger train from Chester to Crewe, when entering No. 10 bay platform line, collided with the buffer-stop. As a result of the collision, 9 passengers in the train, and 1 on the platform, suffered from shock or minor injury; another passenger in the train had both legs broken. The buffer-stop was pushed forward for about 14 feet, and the wall behind it demolished. An office at the end of the bay line was also considerably damaged."
