    If you have an ancestor who was killed on the railway or just wish to research Railway Accidents then this is a good resource.

    I'd forgotten about this particular resource. Good timing, Chimp.

    One of my ancestors was knocked down on a branch line in bad weather, and wasn't found straight away. I'm currently working on his family. Weirdly, I've crossed that same spot (two hundred miles away) several times when out walking... it's now a public footpath.
