TRAIN CRASH 1900, Hatch Street, Dublin Harcourt Street Station opened in 1859 and served as the terminus of the line from Dublin to Bray. It closed in 1958, but the station is perhaps best remembered for the crash in 1900 that saw a cattle train from Enniscorthy crash through the end wall, leaving the engine suspended over Hatch Street. Luckily nobody was killed, though the driver, William Hyland, had to have his right arm amputated. The engine had to be lowered down onto existing tram tracks, moved to Harcourt Road and then, on a temporary track, back to the station. In this image, we can see ads for Bovril, Pickapack Cigarettes, Manders Pale Ale, Quaker Oats, Zebra Grate Polish and TH White’s Wafer Oats.
