I remember the day that this tragic event occurred and I remember also the publicity that followed about racing trains and poor tracks and worn out wheels which of course contributed to the accident. This movie would have to be the best re-creation of it that I could have ever imagined. I was absolutely fascinated by the accuracy of everything. How they re-created the train wreck under the bridge will forever keep me guessing how it was done. I don't care what anyone says, this was how it happened and how the truth emerged according to my memory. I also remember the stories of the characters as they were enduring in the wreck too. Courage and bravery were awash. The people involved really existed. Watching the events unfold is like watching a who dun nit as we learn of the shortcuts which cost so many lives. This is well worth seeing for anyone at all. It's really compelling stuff. Don't miss it.
