      This is the famous 1895 train wreck at the Paris, France, Gare Montparnasse terminal. The derailment and wreck of the Granville – Paris Express was on October 22, 1895, after it overran a buffer stop and crashed through a 2 foot thick wall, shot across an outside terrace and plummeted onto the street below, where it ended up as seen in the photos ~ It was a bad Victorian day. :/

      On the 22 of October, 1895 the Granville-Paris Express overran a buffer stop at The Gare Montparnasse (Train station). The engine careened across almost 30 metres (98 ft) of the station concourse, crashed through a 60-centimetre (24 in) thick wall, shot across a terrace and sailed out of the station, plummeting onto the Place de Rennes 10 metres (33 ft) below, where it stood on its nose.
