Quintinshill, the Worst Railway Disaster in British History

Railroads played a critical role for the United Kingdom in the Great War. But the increased burden on the nation's railways had its cost. In the early morning hours of May 22, 1915, a crowded schedule resulted in the 1915 Quintinshill Rail Disaster, the worst railway disaster in British history. Its victims, mostly men of the 1/7 Royal Scots regiment, deserve to be remembered.
