    • The Spanish River derailment is a rail transport accident that occurred on January 21, 1910, in Northern Ontario, Canada.

      In the early afternoon on January 21, 1910, Canadian Pacific Railway's westbound Soo Express derailed as it crossed the bridge over the Spanish River. 44 people died in the accident and many more were injured.

      Conductor Thomas Reynolds of North Bay made a daring escape from the submerged dining car into the freezing water. After surfacing, he hauled out several passengers through the roof hatch. Some construction workers on a nearby job also assisted in saving some passengers.
