Derailment and Fire Incident at Ordsall Lane.

47500 47854 TnT w/ 5xMK1s from WR working Ardwick to Carnforth ECS 5Z47, 47500 caught fire and derailed at the Ordsall Lane area at around 14.37 on 23/1/2013.

Severe disruptions both at Manchester Piccadilly, Oxford Road and Victoria stations, other stations nearby.

I only saw this train pass Manchester Piccadilly platform 13 at around 12.23 on its way to Ardwick, whilst I was on my way to a higher education interview.

But I am quite gutted having seen 47500 up in flames. More details and pictures of the scene from The Class 47 News, ITV News and Manchester Evening News

The only thing I reported was extremely busy scenes at Manchester Piccadilly, and Customer Notices being displayed as shown below.

Rail Accident Investigation Branch has been informed of the incident.

NR Class 150 stuck in its path...
