An Accident in Waiting
Paperback | English
For the past 68 years the widely accepted cause of the tragic railway accident near Hyde, in Central Otago, has been excessive speed due to the intoxication of the engine-driver. This booklet challenges that conclusion and reveals that events surrounding the accident were far more complex. Evidence in support of the driver’s case is uncovered for the first time. The booklet is embellished with many photographs throughout, including some of the wreckage that have never before been published.
