      Hi Dewey,
       The 1957 accident was the Kendel wreak. It was an excursion train
      near Manchester, Jamaica, British West Indies. The actual casuality figures were
      197 killed with approximately 700 injured when the train derailed and plummetted
      approximately 200 feet over a precipice. It was a double headed diesel run with
      wooden passenger coaches. Many of the coaches landed on top of prior coaches
      instantly crushing many of the prior victims.  
       
      May you be well and happy and always smiling,
       
      Sarah
