Supertram 109 derailed on Herdings Park route

Stagecoach Supertram 109 suffered a minor derailment on Thursday 23rd March whilst it was on the short branch to Herdings Park. Reports have suggested that it was derailed as a result of a concrete block and some ballast being placed in the spring loaded points which caused the points not to be able to move as they should. The derailment happened at around 1245 with only a few passengers on board the tram, none of whom suffered injuries in the low speed derailment. Supertram engineers attended the scene and rerailed the tram before it was taken back to depot for inspection. Services to Herdings Park were temporarily suspended but resumed after a few hours once the tram had been removed and the points fully checked to ensure they were working.
