Great first hand account....
I am still amazed at the lack of track damage. As was the person with this first hand account, The train "flew off" a good ways up (at least an engine length, if not even quite a bit more...can't entirely tell from angle of camera shot) from where the P-42 finally stopped....on what appears to be still completely undamaged track.
I am still amazed that only 3 were killed. Which, while unfortunate, is testimony to the Talgo's design and manufacture.
