Train wreck

Please add Geni profiles of people who died in any sort of train related incident to this project. Do consider spinning off big accidents into separate but related projects.

A train wreck or train crash is a type of disaster involving one or more trains. Train wrecks often occur as a result of miscommunication, as when a moving train meets another train on the same track; or an accident, such as when a train wheel jumps off a track in a derailment; or when a boiler explosion occurs. Train wrecks have often been widely covered in popular media and in folklore.

A head-on collision between two trains is colloquially called a "cornfield meet" in the US.

5 January 1911 at Gaika's Loop near Cathcart Eastern Cape, South Africa the train derailed around sharp bend killing 22 and injuring 50.
