I don't know thd cause, but I did see a bogie with a shattered wheel being delivered to the yard at SBR on Wednesday. It was in quite a few pieces, so guessing it came from this derailment.

And what would that achieve bevens? You still have to truck the goods down the hill.

And just to add insult to the injury, remember the promise of the Marchall govt. to not privatise anything?

Bu now traffic signal maintenance, the trams, and the trains are now privatised. I wouldn ...

Hooray, only a week till Bathurst! Don't care about this whole aerial ping pong stuff.
