Sunday Bridges and train accident

A serious train accident took place last night close to this rail bridge in Amsterdam. Two trains collided in front at each other which left 125 passengers wounded, at least 46 of them are serious injured. It is not yet clear how the two trains managed to ride at the same glides, something must have gone terrible wrong. It was a upsetting evening, see for more information here.

  1. ik had het nog niet gehoord
    hoop dat de gewonden er niet te erg aan toe zijn !

  2. Strange looking bridge.

    There was a commuter train derailment here a few weeks ago. Three people in the locomotive were killed. Investigation found train speed was too high for the cross over as the train switched tracks.

  3. Weer verschrikkelijk, hoe kan dit toch gebeuren.


  4. With so much sophisticated technology now in use it's surprising that such an accident can happen.We can only hope that the injured people survive.
    Best wishes,

  5. Believe it or not, I read about the train collision here in Oklahoma! When I visited Amsterdam I loved riding the train. We stayed in Leiden and rode to Amsterdam during the day. We are praying for the injured.

  6. oh no. That is awful. You would think that train travel would be 100% safe these days, but no.
    hope you are well, Bieb!
