20/08/1965 Sightings The 18:45 Leicester - Wellingborough freight, headed by D5383, ran into the back of the preceding freight which was held at East Langton signals. Both cabs were crushed and the locomotive ended up on it's side and caught fire. The driver was killed, despite taking shelter in the rear cab, while the secondman survived by holding onto the locomotive boiler in the engine room.
The guard of the freight was blamed as he had allowed the service to run despite it being overweight (c. 957 tons).
