A woman has been ordered to attend court on a charge of careless driving after her car was hit by a train on a level crossing.
Eileen Lawrence, 72, from Fairbourne, near Barmouth, Gwynedd, wrote to Dolgellau magistrates admitting guilt.
She said she did not see the train approaching at a level crossing at Fairbourne. The case was adjourned until 17 September.
The emergency brakes had to be used on a train with 80 passengers on board.
Prosecutor Ian Evans said: "Fairbourne village was cut off for several hours and train services were disrupted."
Court clerk Alex Peate said Mrs Lawrence had three penalty points and a "corrective eyesight restriction" on her licence.
Chairman of the magistrates Caerwyn Roberts said the defendant should appear in person and adjourned the hearing.
