    Beautiful looking castings, Alan! Now I know what a Spine Car is. Are you injection molding, or hand pouring this metal? Looks like a craftsman's kit!. Congranulations & stuff! [​IMG]

    Apparently, the track had spread, causing the derailment. Some of the rail fastenings were loose. And it was only inspected by contractors a few days previously!

    No wonder people are deserting rail for their cars in large numbers until things get back to some sort of normality, and safety is greatly improved.
