XAM2179 looks to be still on the track ok, so this sleeper will likely return to service quickly but they also have a spare which maybe available and enable it to be rotated out for repairs.
The XAM is the car on its side behind 2018
Only the XAM and some of the XL cars have the Explorer style bogie clearly seen in the photographs.

EDITED: https://www.railpage.com.au/f-p2169878.htm  for discussion of single XP unit  and on other locos pulling the xpt carriages.  This is not a a on topic discussion point. Worthy of  the seperate thread.  I will splitted off topic not directly related to this accident, and since then deleted two posts  - which I then posted int he new thread.

The signal box at Wallan had been damaged by fire after a copper wire theft.

^^^ Hi Fatty. Could you clarify if that was a Signal Box or a Signal Hut (ie: lineside hut) that you referred to.

There is a big difference between the two.

From what I've seen trains were switched from the main to the loop at 1900 on the day of the incident.
