Hello I am new to the forum.
I have been researching the accident at Quintinshill for nearly two years. The report of the incident above is also carried in a book by J A B Hamilton.
I would be interested to hear from anyone on the forum who has any details or anecdotal evidence on the accident. I have discovered many local myths and folklore that I would like verification on.
One such is a suggestion that an officer, so enraged by the tragedy, went into the signal cabin and tried to shoot the signalmen there. This shocking story could be just local nonsense but I would welcome any information either way.
