On the rainy night of March 2nd, 1944, the overnight steam-power freight train 8017 from Battipaglia to Potenza, did not pass through the railway station at Balvano in southern Italy.
The station master there was not overly worried.

But later at 5:10 that morning, when one of the crewmen from the freight train staggered into the railway station, the Station Master knew something was seriously wrong.

  1. Just a small correction: Both the Italian and the Austrian locomotive were attached in front of the freight wagons + The train did not—as shown—reach the end of the tunnel (which measures 1.7 km) but stopped halfway through. Anyways, I’m really looking forward to see more of these kind of videos in the future!

  2. This was why the Southern Pacific ordered the AC-9 – AC-12 series of cab forward steam locomotives as these sort of gas fumes would build up in the long tunnels and snow sheds on Donner Pass.

  3. Can you do a video about Khalid-Ibn'ul-Walid?

    Please do some more about Abdul-Qadir of Algeria and Umar-Al-Mukthab aswell.
