Discovery Channel Spains Worst Rail Disaster PDTV x264

spains worst rail disaster

Spain’s Worst Rail Disaster presents a second-by-second analysis of Spain’s worst train disaster, and delves into the important questions that surround the fatal incident: what caused the train to derail? Was there a catastrophic technological malfunction or driver error? Or was it a combination of the two? Was the train going too fast? And what did the driver do in the moments before the crash? This one-off programme also looks ahead to the future of train travel in the wake of this terrible event, featuring contributions from leading researchers and train engineers about the world’s most advanced train safety technology.

As Europe and other parts of the world move towards creating a high speed rail network across continents, the programme explores whether we are at risk of creating a network more susceptible to serious train disasters. Exclusive footage filmed by cameras at the scene of Spain’s Worst Rail Disaster explores the implications of this rail disaster for the future of high-speed train travel.

    They needed a “fall guy” from the very beginning to cover up the lack of investment in the maintenance of the lines. I think it was all a cover up.Much easier to blame it on the driver. :(
    Thanks for sharing.
    Do you have the Raisin of the Costa Concordia? Thanks :)

    Hi Nexus

    I dont think that they will blame ONLY the driver. But he is responsible as well, but the big question I have is why the high speed safety system was not working.
    But in my eyes he is partly responsible, I was in Spain at the time of the accident, and it was a sad moment and lots of talking went on during our evening drinks, and everybody said the same, its NOT just the driver, but he has at least 60% responsibility.
