There's a few more photos on Rueters, same plus a couple different views. Trying to sort out the locomotive locations and it's not very obvious.

Per the BBC, first passenger train rear ended a standing freight train then a second passenger train going in the opposite direction hit the wreckage at speed.

The NY Times has a similar chart of how the collisions may have unfolded.  As sidebar article notes that sugnal systems have not been updated as quickly as some would have expected.
