Episode Summary

EDIT
Part 1
AIRED:
On January 18th, 1977, a passenger train travelling on its daily run from the Blue Mountains into the city of Sydney, New South Wales, came off the rails leaving 83 people dead and many others seriously injured. This magnificent two-part Mini-Series tells the true story of those who died, the heroes who rescued the survivors and the pressure put on the police, the witnesses and other key participants to make staements which cleared the railways of any culpability. In this first part, we see the events in flashback from the point of view of the cornoner and his staff as well as many others involved, and follow the tragic journey of the doomed locomotive and its passengers and how this event still haunts the people of Sydney today.moreless
