Die Feuerhölle von Zürich-Affoltern (1994) | SRF Archiv–(YouTube)
08MAR1994 – A freight train derails ca. 5km/3mi from the Zürich-Affoltern railway station in Switzerland. Several tank cars tear open and their load of petrol/gas escapes and catches fire. None are killed but three are severely wounded. 23 are left homeless. Some of the petrol runs into sewers and causes an explosion that blows dozens of manhole covers into the sky and wrecks the sewers.

Newsreel from the Swiss Radio/TV.
