Historical information

The train smash occurred in Sunbury between the Station Street level rail crossing and Sunbury Station in June 1952. The Jubilee train that was used in 1951 to celebrate 125 of European settlement in Victoria, ran into the bank of a goods train on the rail line. The guard in the goods train was killed. This smash was one of a number that have happened in Sunbury. The tree lined street in the background is Horne Street.
