Carriage G, one of two first class coaches, is the point at which the train split in two, perhaps indicating the point where the derailment began.

It lies a few metres away from Carriage H and the rear cab. During the derailment, it tipped over onto its left-hand side and and electricity cables cascaded onto it.

Justin Rowlatt, a Channel Four News reporter who was travelling on the train at the time, said that he watched the carriages skid and whip around on the gravel besides the track.

Other witnesses have spoken of "mayhem" in these moments. Within minutes, many of the passengers in the rear carriages had clambered free and were sitting on the track in shock.
