The Train: The Granville Rail Disaster

The History Channel December 14, 2016

Forty years after it happened, this is the never before told true story of the courage and compassion, the heartbreak and heroes of the Granville Train Disaster. For the first time, survivors and rescuers are reunited to recall the fateful moments on January 18, 1977 when a regular train ride from the Blue Mountains to work, a shopping trip to the city or a school holiday adventure instead became a journey that would end as Australia's worst rail tragedy. The full story behind the crash of the 6.09am Mount Victoria service to Central Station, Sydney, which derailed and brought down Granville's Bold Street Bridge, crushing two crowded carriages and eventually claiming 83 lives.
