Notes:

From Trains magazine, Train Wrecks Vol. 2 takes a revealing look at several major derailments that changed railroading as we know it. From train crossing accidents and floods, to horrific crashes and evacuations, this 100-page special issue covers historic disasters that caused sweeping changes in the railroad industry. Also, discover the new technologies that emerged from catastrophic events.
- Explore the horrifying crash in Lac-Megantic, Quebec, Canada that led to critical changes for trains carrying hazardous materials.
- Learn how the 1987 crash of Amtrak's Colonial ushered in engineer licensing and sobriety requirements.
- Travel to Chatsworth, California, where a head-on crash with a Metrolink commuter train led Congress to demand PTC (Positive Train Control).
- Look back to November 10, 1979, when a train derailment in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, resulted in the largest peacetime evacuation in North America until Hurricane Katrina.
