Elliot Junction 1906
A carriage of the local train after an express had run into the back of it. The accident occurred on 30 December 1906 in a blizzard. A snowdrift had forced the Highland Railway to implement single line working over a section of the main line between Elliot and Easthaven. The block system had failed and time-interval working was in operation. The driver of the express had failed to heed instructions to drive with caution. Twenty-two people died.
