9781492339373: Weeping Waters: When Train Meets Volcano

THIRD EDITION (2017): Benedict le Vay’s latest book Weeping Waters: When Train Meets Volcano is an extraordinary achievement — a meticulously researched and almost forensic reconstruction of one of the 20th century’s worst rail disasters — largely forgotten outside New Zealand — that comes up with a convincing new theory as to why the 151 people on that train died. Bringing the people and railways of exactly 60 years ago this Christmas Eve back to life, he works towards the nail-biting crescendo of the Tangiwai disaster ... Now updated with a major new development. Note the following unsolicited comment from a reader: Finally! The truth of heroism and self sacrifice - All thanks to Ben Le Vay's exceptional book - So incredibly well written and places the reader right there in the locomotive driver's seat. The New Zealand Railways (NZR) "Family" thank you from the bottom of our hearts Ben...You have done us proud!! - God bless the families and most of all God bless Charles Parker and Lance Redman

Sixty years on, le Vay's masterly reconstruction is a fine memorial.
