15 photographic postcards featuring the Ditton railway accident in September 1912, the Quintinshill disaster at Gretna Green in 1915, and Dawlish Convalescent Home. These postcards were collected by railway worker Robert Bunner.

Photographs showing the Ditton accident highlight the importance of route knowledge, as the accident was caused by an inexperienced driver who made a crossover from fast to slow lines at too high speed. The Quintinshil disaster photographs emphasise the importance of proper management of the network and the catastrophic consequences of mistakes, resulting in the official death toll of 227 people.
