Land Rover v Class 66
On 17th July 2009, 66122 working 6J57 18:47 Aldwarke - Stocksbridge steel train rounded the bend between Neepsend and the Five Arches Viaduct on the Deepcar Branch and collided with this Land Rover which was 'parked' in the 4 foot. The two occupents fled the vehicle seconds before impact, which pushed the 4x4 about 100 yards along the track.
The Land Rover was eventually removed from the tracks around Mid-night and dumped at Wadsley Bridge. The DBS driver was slightly shaken but otherwise ok and eventually took his train forward to Stocksbridge returning light engine due to damage sustained to the buffer beam.
