The evening express train from London's Waterloo Station, bound for Portsmouth, was less than ten miles into its journey when it derailed and several carriages were thrown down a steep embankment onto the road below.  Injuries in these cars were extensive and one of the casualties, Doctor William Baly, one of the royal physicians of Queen Victoria, was killed instantly.  (By John Osborne)
