Our investigation will examine the sequence of events before, during and after the incident, in particular:
- the fencing at this location
- the railway’s response to reports of cows being on the line
- the behaviour of the train after it struck the cows
It will also examine any relevant management issues.Having been aboard the train, I look forward to this report.
* The Branch refers to it as the "Deraliment at Godmersham", which is indeed the nearest village to the accident site, but all the reports at the time referred to Chilham.
