Thanks Peter, for your clear account of the accident and the subsequent investigation. Do you know whether or not the tunnel was still gas-lit in 1861? I understand the entire length of it was in its earlier years ... that's quite something.

The photos are appreciated, too. We are reminded of the terrific depth of the railway cutting leading to the southern entry and how that entry could hardly contrast more to the grandeur of the northern one.
