Ashfield, Sydney, Australia (1982)
On Friday 19 March 1982 two single deck suburban trains travelling in opposite directions on the busy six track Western Line suffered extensive damage when one car derailed and speared into the side of the other train causing several cars of both trains to derail. There are more images at the Sydney Electric Train Society's web site as well as an article describing the circumstances of the incident.
