Train Accident involving Anya Vyrubova

(1/1)

Snegurochka:
Please forgive me if this is in the wrong place, but I am trying to find information on the train accident that involved Anya Vyrubova. The train had left Tsarskoe and was headed for Petrograd, if I remember correctly.  I'm writing a biography on her (not a novel), and have been searching for a copy of either the Petrograd paper for 2/15 January, 1915, or another other papers that might have carried an article with the details of the accident.  So far I have seen contemporary accounts that have described it as a collision between two trains, and a derailment of the train she was on, so I need to have it clarified.  Any assistance that anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated :)

Thank you :)

The only information on the train crash that I know of is in Vyrubova's memiors, which can be found on the main AP site. Sorry, that's all I got.

Не пойму странная склейка, или вырезали кого-то или что ? Тени на заднем плане не совпадают ...
I do not understand the strange bonding, or cut someone or something? Shadows on the background are not the same ...

What the Russian caption is saying is that the photo has been cut down the middle, and apparently someone has been removed. But that person's shadow is still visible behind A. A. Vyrubova's father.
