So should we assume the train stays on the tracks when it hits this slight bump?
Or the hose is worth more than the derailment?

I just hope they used the precision level when setting them. This may turn out to be a great example of "Why backlash is a bad thing".  Grin

It seems it's harder than it looks to derail a train.

Hi BluePinnacle,

Excellent video/film archive, thanks for sharing.

Itís a couple of years since I have seen a working M.A.R. Although it was just a 6 phase it still hissed like a pit of snakes but just from the appearance I can understand why the Decca Type 80 radar engineers called it the Mekon.  Smiley
