I have just started looking at my family tree and think you may be able to help as you seem to have updated the Taita roll call records. My great grandfather was Frank Eales who married Susan Walters in 1909. Am I right in thinking it was Susan's sister who was killed in a railway accident in Nelson in 1908. Her name was mentioned as being Lydia Tilbury but I think her maiden name was Louisa Lydia Walters, may have gone by the name of Lydia instead of Louisa.

I have not been one for genealogy but it is interesting once you get going.

yes, Lydia was the sister of Susan.
Her name was recorded as Lydia Walters when she married Albert John Tilbury in 1905

3 February 1908
... The Motueka-Nelson coach was run into by a special train at Appleby crossing at noon to-day. The train struck the front wheels of the coach, smashing the fore part to splinters and freeing the horses, which bolted, but were subsequently recovered unhurt. The driver and three passengers, all ladies, were thrown out. Mrs A. J. Tilbury, of Hutt, was killed and her sister, Miss Walters, sustained a severe shock and minor injuries. Miss Littall, of Richmond had her thigh fractured and the driver, Charles Brickland, was picked up, very seriously injured internally and taken to hospital. It is probable that he will not recover.
The coach was smashed to pieces.
The train was pulled up when it was found that Mrs Tilbury, aged 25, the wife of Arthur john Tilbury, market gardener, Lower Hutt, had been killed instantaneously. Mrs Tilbury, her sister and husband were here on a holiday and were stopping with friends at Appleby Road. They were coming in from Appleby to the Anniversary Day sports meeting. Mrs Tilbury had not long been in the coach when the accident occurred, and meant to go only as far as Richmond, where she would take the train for Nelson with her husband, who was cycling to the station

22 May 1908
... Charles Brickland, the driver of the Motueka coach which collided with a railway-engine at Appleby on the 1st February, causing the death of Mrs Lydia Tilbury, of Wellington, was committed for trial to-day on a charge of manslaughter. Bail was allowed
