Signal NW36 passed at danger at Norton-on-Tees West, 16 January 2013
Description of the incident
At about 07:45 hrs on Wednesday 16 January 2013, train 1A60, the 06:45 hrs Grand Central Railway service from Sunderland to London King’s Cross, passed signal NW36 at danger at Norton-on-Tees West and passed over a level crossing adjacent to Norton-on-Tees West signal box. The barriers were still raised and the crossing was open to road traffic. The Norton-on-Tees West signaller saw that two cars, one in each direction, had stopped at the level crossing as train 1A60 was passing over it. The train should have stopped at signal NW36. The driver of train 1A60 was unaware that he had passed the signal at danger and the train continued on its journey. It was not stopped until it reached Bowesfield, around 3.5 miles (5.6 km) beyond Norton-on-Tees West. There were no other trains in the area at the time of the incident, so there was no risk of a collision
