"The 8.25 p.m. passenger train from Bradford to Shipley (consisting of tank-engine, running tank first, third class break-carriage, one third-class and two composite carriages, and third-class break carriage), which left Laister Dyke at 8.35 p.m., came into collision about a minute afterwards with a goods waggon, one of four vehicles which a goods train from Shipley to Laister Dyke had shunted across the line at Quarry Gap at about 8.16 p.m., and which, instead of running into a siding as intended, had stopped on the crossing foul of the main line, and outside the safety-points of the siding."
