An iconic disaster

While in Belgrade, my gracious host Darko Tanaskovic took me to afternoon tea at a really nice restaurant, The Balkan Express, which had spectacular views of the Danube. The restaurant uses the iconic picture below on many of its publicity material. 

I was curious if the train wreck actually was the Balkan Express. It turns to actually have been a French domestic train at Montparnasse station in Paris in 1895.
