The Moorgate tube crash occurred on 28 February 1975 at 8:46 am on the London Underground's Northern City Line; 43 people died and 74 were injured after a train failed to stop at the line's southern terminus, Moorgate station, and crashed into its end wall. It is considered the worst peacetime accident on the London Underground. No fault was found with the train, and the inquiry by the Department of the Environment concluded that the accident was caused by the actions of Leslie Newson, the 56-year-old driver.

  • Bei dem U-Bahn-Unfall von Moorgate fuhr am 28. Februar 1975 ein Zug des Highbury Branches der Northern Line, heute die Northern City Line, auf der damals von der London Underground betriebenen Strecke im Tunnel- und Kopfbahnhof Moorgate nahezu ungebremst gegen die Abschlusswand des Tunnelendes, an dem das Gleis endete. 43 Tote und 74 Verletzte waren die Folge. Dies war der schwerste Eisenbahnunfall in der Geschichte der London Underground.
  • Tunnelbaneolyckan i Moorgate inträffade kort efter klockan 08.46 den 28 februari 1975 vid i London i England då ett tunnelbanetåg krockade med en betongvägg i cirka 60 km/t. 43 personer omkom, bland dem föraren, och ytterligare 74 skadades allvarligt.
  • 沼澤門地鐵撞車事故(英語:Moorgate tube crash)是一起於1975年2月28日發生在英國倫敦的交通事故,事發時間為該日上午8時46分,地點是的地下隧道內,而該段軌道屬於倫敦地鐵北線的高貝利支線(Highbury Branch)營運路段。當時一列高貝利支線的南下列車直接衝過原本要停靠的沼澤門站月台,並直接衝進隧道末端、撞擊牆壁後造成43人死亡、另外74人受傷,是倫敦地鐵在非戰爭期間死傷人數最多的一樁事故。事後並未發現列車在撞擊前有產生機件故障的情形,環境部(DoE)在調查報告中表示當時的地鐵駕駛員沒有及時降低行車速度、亦沒有準確靠站,而決定肇事原因的證據也不夠充足。 這場致死意外發生後,引入了一套暱稱為「沼澤門防護裝置」(Moorgate protection,見下)、安裝在倫敦地鐵內各個末端路段的設備,可以在駕駛員無法煞車時自動讓列車停下。

  • La catastrophe ferroviaire de Moorgate est un accident survenu le 28 février 1975 sur la Northern City Line, dans le métro de Londres. Alors qu'un train arrive à son terminus à la station Moorgate, celui-ci ne s'arrête pas et fonce dans le cul-de-sac à pleine vitesse. Les voitures s'encastrent les unes dans les autres et la motrice de tête est complètement compressée contre le mur du tunnel. On dénombre 43 morts et 74 blessés, ce qui en fait la pire catastrophe survenue dans le métro de Londres en temps de paix.
