Tilting back would have solved the issue, or prevented it. However lowering it back to ground level it possibly still would of tipped unless they stayed on the rising ballast shoulder. It’s possible ...

That thing about 7 3/8” appeared on my Facebook page April 1. I think that’s about it.

I once thought they actually were trying to put floaties on trains to take them between the mainland and ...

That spur into Kemerton has been on the cards forever, I hope it goes through this time.

Of note Qube are now running at least one triple road train into Bunbury.

Bunbury to Perth is 2hrs in a car, 2.5 by train. For a family it costs a fortune, and always will. I am pro rail, but the PTA report shows buses do a better job cheaper. In its current form I would be ...

Hire some stock from HVR.

$30M for a twice a day service that bleeds money?

Old bridge spans removed, they are preparing for the new ones. Railway crossing at Picton on the southwest highway is being worked on, about half a km of rail between DBC in Picton is being worked on  ...

Longer trains that way when there’s a wash away they pile up 3km of train instead of 1.8 lol

Why would you need an asbestos filled liner in draft gear? Surely there are better substitutes. Its not a hot area.

How many electrical cabinets have asbestos insulation on the old gear.

Does every driver get the sack when they make a mistake? If the train had of rolled and stopped in a valley would he still get the sack, or is just because it made a mess. I don’t really see the jus ...

Sea freight would be cheaper then road or rail. Anything on the water is more economical than any other mode, except maybe a zeplin. So if that extra time isn’t an issue.

They recon they will be able to haul 20 million tons more with the same equipment with auto haul. 940million is not that much money in the scheme of things. They would have probably 2 billion plus inv ...

My understanding the trainstation ended up here

When did 13 years become almost 20? Pretty sure the last train south of Picton was in 2005.

But where would the time out feature be useful? Could the driver have sat in the cab for an hour and then applied pnenumatic  brake? If the 60 minute cutout feature was eliminated, this wouldn’t hav ...

So that being the case KRviator what is the reason for the 60 minute time out? If you can dump the BP and wait two minutes to cancel the ECP system, why have the time out? Kind of confused about that. ...

Must understanding is they are ECP, but as KRviator points out, after one hour of lost communication it reverts to the Westinghouse style operation, as in, applies the brakes based on brake pipe reduc ...

I’m not convinced two drivers would have solved this. The issue is humans, not the quantity. It may have reduced the risk however but not eliminated it.

ECP is to my mind a fairly recent technol ...

If only the author of that article had enough resources to research that locomotives have onboard ‘ablution’ facilities. I guess it’s supposed to be a joke. If the driver was pissing he wouldn€ ...

I estimate the trains required anchoring needs would be around 600 ton. Which is 150 ton per loco, at 200 ton per loco which I think there less then that anyway, it would mean a minimum of 75% tractio ...

Skim reading a document on ECP brake operation there are circumstances where a wagons’ brakes can cut themselves out of service due to faults. It’s only takes a couple of abnormalities to stack up ...

This could be an equipment failure. That answer is the one that makes the most sense in my head. There could have been a critical fault with the ECP brakes and that’s why they stopped. Maybe the bra ...

[quote=RTT_Rules]Is this what happened to that massive oil train derailment and subsequent explosion and fire that wiped out most of a town in Canada. Engine left running for the night while driver sl ...
