moorsy - I was only five yearsof age at the time of that crash it happened behind our street which ran parallel to the railway track but I remember it.  Ballymacarrett Halt was just behind our house as was the Dee Street  bridge the accident was close to the Oval [Home of the mighty Glens}. At that time the Oval had been blown apart by a land mine they rebuilt it in the late 40/s cheers rmc
