At this time, the main focus of this page is passenger train derailments in the United States and Canada. As time permits, we will try to expand the information on this page to cover other areas of the world and information on freight derailments. Some time in the future, we hope to add more data related to the history of derailments.

George Black, a member of the National Transportation Safety Board, said investigators are impressed with how the double-deck Superliner cars remained intact even though they were pounded with massive forces. Unlike airliners, which are built of lightweight aluminum and composite material, rail passenger cars are built of heavy steel. This factor alone often prevents deaths or major injuries in even high-speed train wrecks. "The good story is that the cars stood up like champs," Black said.
