Collision on North Yorkshire Moors Railway


A Class 20 diesel locomotive collided with the rear of a stationary passenger train at Grosmont station on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway at about 10:32 on Tuesday 21 September 2021.

The locomotive was running at around 10mph at the time and the collision resulted in minor injuries to five passengers as well as some damage to the passenger train.

Having undertaken a preliminary examination into the circumstances surrounding this incident, and having assessed the evidence that has been gathered to date, the Rail Accident Investigation Branch (RAIB) has decided to publish a safety digest, which will be made available on its website in the next few weeks.
