On 26th May 1999, if I remember rightly, the author was minding his business in the guards van when he noticed a rapid application of brakes and a call on the alarm for "guard to engine". This is what I saw - but by the time of the photo, most of it had gone! (see right of picture). Driver Donald Heath and fireman Mick Barnes did nobly to regain all but 10 minutes of the lost time by our return to Wharf Station.
