Ambushed! – the Terrorist Attack
On New Year’s Day, 1915, 1200 men, women and children, boarded a train consisting of a locomotive and 40 open ore trucks travelling to the annual New Year’s Day picnic at Silverton – about 20 km away from Broken Hill, a mining town in western NSW, Australia. The crowded train of excited people departed Sulphide Street Railway Station at 10 am. Shortly after departure, two gunmen attacked the passengers. Watch this video to see what happened next.
