"Just after the 1 a.m. down goods train from Armagh to Belfast, which had been doing work at the station, had started upon its journey, it was overtaken at 3.40 a.m. by the 8 p.m. down goods train from Dublin, which struck the rear brake-van at a point about half-way along the platform at Lurgan, breaking up the van and the two waggons next to it, and throwing two others off the rails."
