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!
