A spectacular multiple real train crash film. Which culminates in an old 4-4-0 charging off a collapsing wooden trestle viaduct into the river below, taking a train of four coaches with it. The only bits of the story that survive lead up to the magic moment (which, in his excitement, the cameraman almost misses completely!); there is a follow-up as the two coaches that have remained on the track are pushed over into the river in a somewhat unconvincing manner.

(Also brief train crash from 'the Wreck' on the end)
