Mishaps - 1521 "Up in the Air"

Ooops! 4 Cep NºUnit 1521 gingerly balances with the front power bogie completely suspended in mid air after demolishing a set of buffer stops at the end of the viaduct over Ramsgate Road at Ramsgate when a shunt move went "horribly wrong" in 1987!

You can see how serious the situation was - fortunately no one was injured in this shunting mishap.
