The paper presents a series of 97 cases who were involved in railway accidents and either died or sustained gruesome injuries. Many were passengers and some workmen of the railway. The present study is limited only to passengers who sustained injuries due to their own mistakes or due to mistakes of other people, and to railway workers working without due care and attention in the railway premises. Other types of railway accidents such as carriages on fire or collision of trains have not been included in the present series. The study of train accident injuries was undertaken in view of : i) Vulnerability of passengers or railway workers, ii) Vulnerability of commuters crossing railway lines; iii) Grevious injuries sustained in great majority of the patients, who ended up with disabilities.
