a ding at Timaru, 1927

This accident was too old to be included in the book Danger Ahead: New Zealand Railway Accidents in the Modern Era.  The unresearched details: on 4 June 1927 the southbound (11.25 am) Express number 145 derailed just north of the Timaru station adjacent to the foot of Strathallan St. No-one was seriously injured but the entire crew were severely shaken. Engine Ab 719, driver Dick Stoke.
