Investigations expose a dark trail of negligence and guilt that resulted in the September 2000 sinking of the ferry the Samina Express off the treacherous rocks beneath the landmark rock formation, Gates of Paros.
A freight train charges onto an occupied single track, ploughing through the passenger train Super Continental. The traffic signals are found to be working perfectly, leaving only human fault to account for the tragedy.
Before a freight train leaves the station, workers load the cars with some 2700 tonnes more weight. The conductor is never informed. Overloaded, he is unable to stop the train from derailing.
