Red House LC (UWG)

Looking east from Red House UWG crossing towards Abermule on 16 September 2019. It was in this area that on 26 January 1921 an eastbound express crashed head on with a westbound stopping service with tragic consequences. Unfortunately the lineside vegetation now prevents you from identifying the local landmarks that were visible in photos of the accident scene.

The investigation into the circumstances that lead to the crash are contained within the official report, available here:
