This DVD was released for the 70th Anniversary commemoration held at Samford Museum and organised by The Samford District Historical Museum Society Inc, Rotary Club of Samford and Samford Progress and Protection Association. These nine recordings by locals who were touched in various ways have been made in response to community interest in the accident. We must be aware that communication then was not by mobile phone. Emotions resurfaced more than 6o years later while recalling that tragic day. An overview of the rail line and the era by QR ‘s historian introduces the interviews.
