Excitement in our small town

This is a shot of the news on the telly as obviously I couldn't get close enough to take a photo myself. This morning a freight train carrying fuel derailed just outside our village, and a couple of the carriages caught fire. Luckily no-one was hurt.
By the time I left the house today there was just some black smoke, but there will be some disruption to the road and railway line for some time as a bridge collapsed onto the road out towards Kilmarnock.
All you could see round the town was groups of people talking about it, nothing usually happens here lol.


  1. Oh my goodness! So glad no one was hurt.


  2. Oh my gosh - hope no one was hurt

  3. Oh dear. That looks horrible
