I set my road for the up fast line. I brought the engines back on the up fast line, and then replaced the points. The engine then stood on the up fast line. I was under the impression for the moment that I could turn these engines on to the down fast line. In the meantime I had called the signalman's attention at Ardwick, and had ob tained permission to send the tram on tne down fast.

After he had accepted the ready I gave him the signal to come down. Rpini? under tha imoressiou that the engines were on the down fast line I accepted the passenger train on the up fast. I then gave orders tor tne nome signal 10 ua lowered, so that the seven o'clock passenger train could go through. I did not discover the mistake until I heard the engine whistle. When I heard that sprang to the home signal and threw it up, but it was then too late."
