  1. Lloyd

    Interesting. Wrecks over a 20+ year period of time, long before many of us were born. The history point of view is good. Unfortunately, the disaster part is not good. If you are really into this, you will enjoy it. Personally… not really my cup of tea.

  2. Joy

    Very interesting. You hear lots of details about each wreck. Sad that they happened.

  3. T.A.R.

    WHAT AN UNUSUAL FILM THIS IS– THIS FILM EXPLAINS IN DEPTH ABOUT 11 MAJOR TRAIN ACCIDENTS AND CRASH’S. THESE WRECKS SPAN A TIME PERIOD OF 21 YEARS FROM 1934 TO 1955. ALL ACCIDENTS ARE EXPLAINED IN DETAIL. THIS FILM MAY NOT BE FOR EVERYONE, BUT I GIVE IT A 5 STAR RATING FOR ALL THE GOOD INFORMATION. RUNNING TIME IS 45 MINUTES.

  4. Michael

    This is a unique video that delves into the tragedy of train wrecks and accidents that occur in the railroad world. It may not be for everyone but if you are a true rail fan, it is a video that you will surely want to add to your collection.
