that's My World, Stavoren Trainaccident.

 
 
 
Posted by Picasa



Yesterday the inhabitants of Stavoren, in the north of the Netherlands, missed being killed by a train that had been derailed. Fortunately there were no casualties, but the damage of this weird accident is great . I just read that the train was empty except for four Italian men who were supposed to service the train. The train was driven at a very high speed. The Italians probably didn't know how to handle this train.

Oh my gosh, that's terrible, a train in the middle of the houses!
What luck that no one was hurt.
Weird indeed.

Oh my, what a freak accident! Do they know what caused the train to derail?

Amazing that there were no casualties. I imagine there were wounded people though, unless there was no one on board.

What a terrible accident, but of course broken trains can be mended. We can't always mend broken bodies.

Thank God no casualty.

In light of the fact that this was on the cusp of being a very tragic accident, <> will resist the temptation to joke about the Italians involved...
