On the night of Sunday, 5 March 1967, an express train travelling from King's Cross to Edinburgh was derailed, killing five passengers and injuring eighteen others.Despite exhaustive investigations, British Railways officials could find no defects in the track, signalling or rolling stock, and the case was referred to the British Transport Police. Suspicion had already fallen on one man. Was it possible that the signalman operating the points at Connington South had caused the derailment and the subsequent loss of life?This meticulously researched book reveals the fascinating truth behind the newspaper headlines. With the help of eyewitness accounts, police reports and the expert knowledge of generations of railwaymen, Courtney Atkin reconstructs the events of one cold spring night and the investigation that led to the detection and conviction of the signalman.
