Just wondering, does anyone have information and or photos on the derailment of an L class (L1163 I believe) at Drouin in 1985??????
Would be interested in seeing anything about it.
The scrub looks reasonably lush, what time of year was it and was the cause a heat buckle? Do you know any of the details of the cause?
It happened on 2nd Feb 1985.
Amazingly for my age, I can't remember this incident. However, I do remember that an L Class broke down in the Haunted Hills between Moe and Morwell in the late 1970's, only for the rescuing loco to crash into it!
The September photo competition is now open for submissions!
