    Full title reads: "Near Carlisle. Express Train Smash. London-Edinburgh flier crashes into goods train ... fortunately - casualties were slight."

    Carlisle, Cumbria.

    Pan along railway tracks showing derailed and damaged carriages. As the pan continues we see the derailed steam locomotive. The other train involved in the collision is also there in the background. People are walking along looking at the wreckage.

    Closer shots of wrecked carriages. A large crane can be seen, helping to move debris.

    I believe this is the aftermath of the accident at Little Salkeld on 10th July 1933.
