Collapse of the Cockett Tunnel. On Monday night, the Cockett Tunnel, on the G.W.R. main line near Swansea collapsed. Soon after 7 p.m. about fifty tons of masonry in the tunnel fell, blocking both up and down lines. The day was a particularly busy one with passenger traffic, owing to the Barnum and Bailey Show at Swansea, and during the day 7,000 or 8,000 excursionists had been conveyed to that town. Two return excursions had just passed down when the disaster occurred, rendering the line impassable for further traffic. No loss of life nor injury occurred happily, and arrangements were quickly made to convey the remaining passengers from Swansea to Llanelly and down-line towns by the London and North Western Railway, and it is probable that the temporary service over the London and North Western line will have to be continued for a few months until the tunnel is again made perfectly safe. The Great Western Railway Company give notice that, in consequence of the temporary obstruction in Cockett Tunnel, the Swansea and Llanelly train service will be conducted by the London and North Western Railway. Several trains will be discontinued for the present, and the times of those now running will be materially altered to suit the new circumstances and to meet the various connections.
