  • Description

    Three railway gangers were seriously injured when the post-van of an electric train running between Eindhoven and Venlo, Holland, left the rails at Helmond, recently.

    The postvan plunged down an embankment and ended in a ditch while the first four carriages of the train carried on for almost two miles.

    It took breakdown squads 14 hours to restore one and a half miles of damaged track to normal service. Repair work was carried out, mostly during a night of violent thunderstorms.

    As well as the gangers, two occupants of the post-van were slightly injured.
