It was before my time, but people at one time staged train wrecks.  They
would lay track out into the middle of a field somewhere, charge admission
to watch, and crash two steam locomotives into each other head-on.  I
don't know if they loaded the trains with gunpowder and such, but they
might well have.  I don't know whether such events drew opposition from
train-lovers and whatever environmentalists existed back then.
