Kentish Town railway accident, on the Hampstead Junction lin
On the evening of Monday 2nd September, 1861, a ballast train and a passenger train collided at Kentish Town on the Hampstead Junction line despite the driver of the passenger train tried to alert the other train with a red light. Approximately one hundred people were killed and many more injured. The image appeared in the paper to highlight the need for organised railway regulations, as the managers of the railways were only concerned with technological progress, and not safety.
