Accident investigators have been called in after a crash on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.
It happened at Grosmont Station yesterday (Tuesday, 21 September).
A diesel locomotive collided with a stationary set of carriages at 10.52am.
All passengers were taken off the stationary train and transported back to Whitby. There were no serious injuries reported.
It is being investigated by the RAIB (Rail Accident Investigation Board), as is standard in such cases.
Laura Strangeway, head of business development, said: “I am immensely proud of the team here at the railway – with passenger safety paramount, the situation was managed carefully and as quickly as possible.
“Whilst there were no serious injuries to passengers, the carriages involved in the incident are now out of operation whilst the investigation is ongoing.
“This has impacted the railway’s services, and so we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel the Pullman services between 23rd to 26th September.
“Those passengers booked to travel on a Pullman service will be contacted or emailed and bookings will either be transferred to another date or refunded.”
