On this episode of Tracks Through Time as part of FreightWaves Classics, Deputy Editor Brielle Jaekel looks at the disappearance of a massive ship, the U.K. merchant ship MV Derbyshire. No one knew what actually happened until 20 years after the disaster, thanks to the families of the crew who fought hard for answers.

Find out what happened to the ship and how families were responsible for finding these answers, and wait for our fun fact of the day at the end of the show.
