SALZBURG, Austria, Nov. 12 -- A round-the-clock effort to free a corpse-filled funicular train continued Sunday inside an Alps mountain tunnel, the scene of Austria's deadliest tragedy since World War II. Revising previous figures, officials now estimate 155 people died -- mainly Austrians and Germans but also at least eight Americans and 10 Japanese --and 18 survived Saturday's fire aboard the Kitzsteinhorn resort train.
