lots of very relevant stuff
While that is true I reckon it's a pretty big stretch to say they the rail industry is becoming "more dangerous than it's ever been".

[quote=M636C]Given the description of the wreckage, it seems possible that the derailment was initiated at the point the single track diverges into double track, although for conventional running the ...

BL33 X48 and 8125 on the pointy end. Current ETA is 1244.
