long before "The Italian Job" (1969) there was this real finely balanced vehicle situation

"On 17 October 1884, the railroad bridge over the Little Miami River at Batavia, Ohio, collapsed under the weight of a train.
"The engine, baggage car and first coach fell fifty feet [17 metres] into the river.

"The last coach was very lucky."
