A Railroad Wreck (Imitation) (1900)

A Railway Collision (also known as A Railroad Wreck) is a 1900 British short silent drama film, directed by Walter R. Booth and produced by Robert W. Paul. The film depicts a stretch of single-track railway running through mountainous terrain on an embankment above a lake and a yacht. A goods train passes a signal, stops and begins reversing back up the track. A fast express train comes out of a tunnel in front of the goods train, on the same track. The two trains collide head-on and plunge down an embankment. It was one of a number of sensationalist "trick films" made at Paul's Animatograph Works, his studio in Muswell Hill in north London, and represents one of only a very small number of surviving films by Paul.
