I was there when this one happened. Absolutely terrible...both legs were pretty much sheared off. The horrible thing was, immediately after it happened, the commuters dragged the guy clear and then he actually reared up and tried to run on the stumps. Heartbreaking Sad

Location: The mystical lost principality of Daptovia
South Coast line is currently shut down from Dapto to Bondi, incl. W'gong to PK. This was to have functioned with 2 x 2 car Endeavour sets running trains Dapto-Kiama & Dapto-Bomaderry, with arranged bus services making up the rest, as per usual practice.

For whatever reason, the 2nd Endeavour set was unavailable, so it's been a pair of 4 car Oscars running Dapto-Kiama, with a single Endeavour doing Kiama-Bomaderry.

Expect it will be much as above for the duration of tomorrow.
