An enlarged poster sized copy of that photo that S. Towler posted is on the wall downstairs of the building that I work in. I sometimes spend a few minutes looking at it up close.

Wikipedia wrote:
October 23, 1895 – Gare Montparnasse, Paris, France: a local train overruns a buffer stop due to Westinghouse air brake failure and crosses more than 30 metres of concourse before plummeting through a window. One person in a shop below was crushed by the falling engine.
