Train crashed into Kidwelly farmer's parked trailer
A train crashed into a trailer left blocking a railway line while a farmer in Carmarthenshire went to feed his horses, Swansea Crown Court has heard.
John Watkyn-James of Limestone Hill Farm, parked his tractor next to the track at Kidwelly on 31 January with the trailer he was towing on the line.
The 51-year-old admitted endangering safety on a railway.
Judge Paul Thomas QC was told no-one was injured. He adjourned sentencing until next month.
A train travelling from Manchester to Milford Haven crashed into the trailer at about 13:30 GMT.
Watkyn-James had driven his tractor over the crossing without permission from a signalman.
Adjourning sentencing for pre-sentence reports, the judge said it was an "unusual matter".
