Background: An '0' gauge railroad services the small town around Naples connecting them with the city. It is used mostly by people who live in these 'suburbs' and who daily commute to Naples for work.
Yesterday morning the train No 63 coming from Torre Gaveta ran head on into train No 54 which had left Naples. The accident took place at one end of one of the tunnels on the BR. track. In that particular spot the track is single and the train crash happened because of a difference in time which had not been noticed by the station masters.
Both engines were badly damaged, the conductors of the engines were also badly injured together with 20 passengers. Other passengers also were injured but were immediately release from hospitals to which the wounded had been taken.
Traffic on the line was suspended throughout the morning. An inquest to establish responsibilities was begun at once.
