It appears that Auckland is now down a train following an accident in the Westfield yards last week. I’m not sure how it happened or who was at fault but one of Kiwirails new DL freight locomotives got a little to up close and personal with one of the driving cars on an SA train. The results of the incident are below:
I’m not sure how long the train will be out of action but it is pretty concerning considering just how tight things are with our rolling stock until the new EMUs arrive. I believe that an investigation is already under way into the incident.
Edit: A new image of the incident, obviously not long after it happened (thanks Geoff)
