When I did my training to be a conductor the trainer was also the accident investigator so if anyone happened he'd be the one who they would try to get first on the scene after emergency services etc..
Anyway, I never forget a photograph he showed us of a certain accident. What had happened is a train of merry-go-round wagons had their brakes isolated when being shunted in the colliery, and they were coupled together and someone had not un-isolated them when they were ready to be taken on the main line, so the whole train of 30-40 wagons had no brakes. The driver didn't notice until he came towards the first signal set against him near a tunnel. What the picture showed of the result you couldn't do if you tried. The first seven wagons were one on top of the other stacked perfectly as if someone had done it with a crane! The wheels of each stacked wagon resting in the level coal load underneath it... It was a scene that baffled everyone! He had mentioned it and he brought the photo to prove it. Never seen anything like it.

Lucky he had a camera with him.
When I moved in with the wife just before we married, I was on the bus going home and there was a vet's surgery next to a roundabout so the bus had to slow down. Right outside the vet's was a van with Vetinary Ambulance on the side. The driver was inside and left his dog in the cab. The pooch was sitting on the driver's seat with his paws on the steering wheel! That was in the late 1990s. No camera phones and it would have been too late to run back with my film camera. I could have made money from that picture.

We had a similar event where in wales you get the welsh word then the English after so on our roads it is ARAF and then under it is SLOW. Now living on a small mountain near a plane target practice area we used to get a lot of low flying (Low enough to snap a 25' CB aerial on our barn witnessed by us though they officially denied they ever came that low)... Anyway. The council or contractors had done roadworks through this road marking and it now said RAF LOW. One morning driving towards the bit of road at the top of a 1in4 descent half way down the mountain we watched a military aircraft heading straight towards us as we were half way in height of the 500 ft mountain near the sea. Would have made a brilliant photograph.
They used to regularly have to raise the nose of the plane to avoid colliding with hedgerows here. Further east are two rows of pylons which I dare say the odd plane had flown under at speed!

Wish I'd had a camera with me in the Tower at Heathrow. Had a TWA B747 fly over us to check his undercarriage was down. Had to be told to climb as he was aiming at the 5th floor
