Talk:Classification of railway accidents
|WikiProject Trains / in UK||(Rated Stub-class, Low-importance)|
List of rail accidents - by type of accidents.
It would be nice if the description of each type of accident ( such as head-on collision ) included a list of accidents of that type, extracted from the List of rail accidents topic, which is growing too long. This makes it easier to study accidents of a simuilar kind.
The Veligonda train disaster is a washaway or weather type accident, which now lists many washaway type accidents.
Expect the categories of accident-types to overlap. For example, a bridge collapse due to fatigue, might be classified differently to a bridge or embankment collapse due to flooding.
