Granville Train Disaster

Granville Train Disaster | Risk Management | Scoop.it
Notes: The Granville rail disaster occurred on 18 January 1977 in the Sydney suburb of Granville, Australia, when a crowded commuter train travelling from the Blue Mountains to Sydney Central derailed, running into the supports of a road bridge which came down onto two of its passenger carriages. Eighty-three people died, more than 210 were injured and 1,300 were affected. It was the worst rail disaster in Australian history based on loss of life, and to this day many people and families in the Blue Mountains bear the scars of the crash. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Granville_rail_disaster www.abc.net.au/50years/news/key_stories_nat/ksn_1977.htm www.lawlink.nsw.gov.au/lawlink/Coroners_Court/ll_coroners... www.railpage.com.au/f-t3776.htm www.granvillehistorical.org.au/Granville Rail Disaster.htm www.nswfb.nsw.gov.au/page.php?id=477 Format: B&W photograph Licensing: Attribution, non-commercial, share alike, creative commons.
