#AceNewsReport – Oct.12: About 50 passengers were evacuated from the train. London Ambulance Service (LAS) treated two people, including the driver, for minor injuries….
#AceDailyNews says according to BBC News two people treated at scene for injuries after Emergency services were called to Enfield Town station when the Overground train derailed during rush hour on Tuesday morning.
Services are suspended from Edmonton Green to Enfield Town: Transport for London said the train was travelling at “low speed” when it crashed:
British Transport Police (BTP) said: “As is routine, the driver has been breathalysed and blew negative.”……….The driver was treated for shock, Network Rail said.
Images posted on social media showed the train remained upright but came off the tracks and stopped just short of hitting a station building.
London Fire BrigadeAn eye-witness said the “train would have damaged the building” had it not been for the protective barrier
Station commander Jim O’Neill, who was at the scene, said: “The train had hit the buffers at the station, which is at the end of the line, and gone up over the top of them.
“Firefighters carried out a systematic search of the train to ensure there were no further people on board.
“Crews assisted station staff to make the scene safe and a recovery operation will now be carried out.”
Gary Spencer, a worker at the nearby postal sorting office, said dozens of emergency services vehicles were outside the station.
He said: “I have never known a train to fail stopping at the end of the line.
“If the metal steel was not behind the buffer I’m confident the train would have damaged the building.”
