Bedwyn Derailment 7 May 1983

Bedwyn station pictured on 7 May 1983, the day after a stone train derailed whist passing through, partly demolishing the platform. The errant MSV open wagon that caused the accident can be seen dumped in the old bay platform on the left. The rails have already been removed, and work is about to start to clear up the mess, with a train of Grampus wagons waiting to receive the spoil.
