  • The Settle rail crash was a railway accident that occurred at Langcliffe near Settle, England, on the night of 21 January 1960 in which two trains collided, killing five people and injuring eight more. Britannia Pacific No 70052 Firth of Tay was leading the 21:05 train from Glasgow St Enoch to London St Pancras. On the descent from Ais Gill summit, the driver heard a repeated knocking which he thought came from the connecting rods near where they were connected to the locomotive's drive wheels. He reduced speed and later stopped the train in a gale force wind while it was snowing at Garsdale, but was unable to find the cause of the noise. He continued south at what he thought was less than 20 mph, however timings from the signal boxes showed the speed was 40 mph. The fireman on the right of the train then saw sparks from the side of the locomotive as ballast began to be thrown up against the cab. As the driver made a full brake application, an LMS class 5-hauled goods train passed in the opposite direction. The engine and eight leading wagons derailed, colliding with the side of the first three carriages of the express, killing five people and injuring eight more. The accident happened near the village of Langcliffe, immediately north of Settle.
