South Africa steam derailment
« on: June 21, 2010, 02:44:21 PM »
Relayed from Australia this morning. A steam excursion train in South Africa was derailed, apparently by vandals, yesterday. No injuries to crew or passengers, but the photos are pretty scary.

Wayne,
Those pics are quite disconcerting.  Makes you wonder why someone would purposely vandalize track given the sort of damage that would result.
