The Torre del Bierzo rail disaster occurred on January 3, 1944 near the village of Torre del Bierzo in the El Bierzo region of Spain’s León province when three trains collided inside a tunnel. Although the official death toll was 78, and at the time it was estimated to be 200–250, more recent studies have estimated the death toll at over 500.
