"Damaged 4-4-0 locomotive number 1105 at Moss Side, Lancashire. The locomotive has been severely dented and beyond that there are some crushed and derailed carriages. Several people were killed in this accident. Accidents were more common at this time than they are now. However, safety measures were being put in place; for example carriages were fitted with continuous brakes making it easier for trains to stop quickly."
