Union Station Train Crash

Sparks fly from an acetyline torch at Washington D.C.'s Union Station, Jan 16, 1953, as round-the-clock salvage operations continued to clear away the wreckage of a train that crashed into the station concourse yesterday. Workmen are cutting loose one of the damaged cars of the Boston-Washington express from the top of the train shed where it had jammed when the train brakes failed. Fifty-one persons were injured in the crash in which the engine and a coach tore their way through the station floor. (AP Photo/Harvey Georges)
