Cuarto de Pulgada’s shunt loco has been helping to test the new shed tracks, propelling a train of hoppers over the turntable to check the alignment.
I was paying attention to the hoppers rolling across the turntable rather than watching the caboose at the other end of the train.
That was when this happened.
You’re going nowhere matey!
I’ve completely replaced the front two tracks but the third has only been relayed at the turntable end. The derailment was caused by rocks loosened when the old tracks were lifted.
