On Norfolk Southern Operating Rule 185 states that engineers must require anyone which manually operates a switch or a derail to “double check” the position to ensure it is properly aligned. This also goes for engineers when operating under restricted speed instances to make sure that switches are properly lined during a leading movement.
Case in point.
An engineer failed to stop prior to an improperly lined switch, running through it, thereby creating a small enough gap that resulted in splitting the switch and derailing the locomotive after reversing back through it.
I've added a link to my latest update video where I include a video of this locomotive being re-railed. Enjoy!
