/ Frightening, alarming video of Spanish train crash
Seriously; my heart goes out to those killed and injured and their families.
I'd rather not!
That train was moving wasnt it! And by admission, twice the speed limit! Must have been so frightening for the passengers!!
Won't go beyond its design speed, but unless the line has continuous automatic train protection (not very common off the new high speed lines, and this was a high-speed-ish train on a conventional line not unlike the situation with Virgin Pendolinos) there is often nothing to prevent speeding through a section of line once you've passed the speed limit board.
