A Rail Mishap  16th November 1937

When a train of empty coal wagons was passing through Methley, on Tuesday noon from Gascoigne Wood.  One of the wagons left the rails at the bend just before reaching the Junction Station and bumped through the station doing a considerable amount of damage to the permanent way  and to the edge of the platform.  While near the signal cabin it caused two other wagons to leave the rails.   By working single line very little inconvenience was caused to the trvelling public and the damage was repaired as expeditiously as possible,  normal working was resumed in the evening.
