Londonist Out Loud is presented and produced by N Quentin Woolf. This week’s show comes to you from next to a chilly railway line with transport journalist, historian and editor of www.londonreconnections.com, Gareth Edwards.

Under discussion are the railways, both in London and nationally. The pair delve into the 1952 Harrow and Wealdstone rail crash, its scale, the medical response at the time and its legacy. Also find out Transport for London’s response to the question: where do all the newspapers left on their trains and buses go?

    Really good to hear a 1952 featured podcast with a photo of a 1972 ambulance….

      Hm. I did wonder… I just happened to notice it in a parking lot on the day of recording, and next to a train line, too… Ah well. It sounds like you might be someone with pictures of 1952 ambulances close to hand – if the inaccuracy has left you distressed, perhaps you might admire one of those by way of a remedy?
