On 28th February 1975 a London Underground train crash led to the deaths of 43 people and injured dozens more. Now for the first time in 40 years, stories of that day and the aftermath are brought together in one volume to give a terrifying account of a day that shook the rail network. Interviews from survivors, rescuers and the relatives of those killed answer questions that until now have remained hidden. How was a packed train able to overshoot a terminal station and crash with such devastating consequences? How were the rescuers able to pull people out of the wreckage alive over 12 hours after impact? Most importantly...what was the cause of the crash? Author Richard M. Jones has dedicated his life to researching disasters of historical significance that have been forgotten.
