Can someone please tell me that in the first video my eyes are not playing tricks and that the loco appears to proceed through a red signal? Not even a low speed comes up?

Could this be what caused it? Maybe the route was set for a standard gauge move, but the signal was not working so they proceeded on a caution order?

Not sure. Just looking at video makes me think that.

That is what I have read elsewhere on the internet, that a caution order was involved. I'm sure all will come out in the wash!

looking back through the

http://www.youtube.com/Railpage channel shows all BG freight trains on the up since the derailment of 9102 have been passing the signal at RED.

The Local Line is now open and available for traffic.  The steel train left this morning via local.  It would appear from the fix only SG access is available via the Local as the BG is not yet reconnected.  So only BG trains via the MAIN or the left track if you are looking at the camera. SG is also available via the MAIN.

Michelle can you add anything else even a pic?

Transport Safety Victoria have announced they will investigate this derailment: http://www.atsb.gov.au/publications/investigation_reports/2013/rair/ro-2013-027.aspx
At about 0150 (EDT) on 4 December 2013, a broad-gauge freight train travelling on dual-gauge track derailed near Sims Street Junction, West Melbourne.

The route that was set took the train towards standard-gauge-only track and the locomotive and first wagon derailed. All vehicles remained upright and there were no injuries. The Office of the Chief Investigator Transport Safety (Vic) is investigating the incident under the provisions of the Transport Safety Investigation Act 2003.

Was there ever an outcome as to why the 9204 derailed on the BG crossover to the local line that year? I recall it happened around the same time as the Mildura derailed at West Footscray.

Not sure if it is the answer to your question but if you click on the link to the report in the last post (directly above your post today) it talks of the road being incorrectly set due in part to some of the safe working systems having been "degraded" by the previous derailment. A rollicking good read it is too!

So, will we be shrinking our oversized rail gauge within the next 100 years so this doesn't happen?
