On September 22, Amtrak’s eastbound Sunset Limited en route from Los Angeles to Miami, carrying 220 persons on board, roared across the Big Bayou Canot Bridge near Mobile, Alabama and derailed. Three locomotive units, the baggage and dormitory cars, and two of the six passenger cars were catapulted into the water.

It was the worst train disaster in U.S. history. The National Transportation Safety Board was called in to investigate and used forensic engineering and metallurgy to discover the cause of this accident.

TMBA was asked to recreate several animations of the incident based on the final NTSB findings report.
