It was the New South Wales rail disaster that killed six people and injured 100 more. Some of those on board share their recollections of that day.
It was May 6, 1990 and the historic 3801 steam passenger train was returning from the Morpeth Jazz Festival, which is held around 40 kilometres from Newcastle.
But it was no ordinary train ride back to Sydney.
The journey was brought to a halt when the 3801 was struck at the rear by the City Rail inter-urban passenger service around the Cowan area.
The force threw passengers through the air and six people were killed, 100 injured.
There were screams and then an eerie silence. I know, because I was there.
