Oz Derailment

Oh dear, they're really having a time of it in Oz.

Now the Sydney to Melbourne XPT has come off the road with 2 reported deaths.

Sad times.

G'day BW,
Yep, the southbound Rocket went bush near Wallan in Mexico yesterday arvo.
The driver and a "pilot" driver being killed.
Looks to be a real mess from the published photos.
Amazing that more fatalities did not occur.
The ATSB is investigating.
The eastbound Silver Streak got stranded here in Bathurst on wednesday for some reason.
I presume that the land slide repair on the Blue Mountains took longer than predicted.
