The first train through Bunbury St is NR26-NR24 on 1PM7 @ 17:31 this afternoon
What is still left to come through Gheringhap Melbourne bound?
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?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!
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.
might there be trackwork this morning in melbourne? PN delayed into the junction
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!
