    There is more truth in that statement Tom than perhaps you are aware of. R761 actually derailed on the diamond crossing taking it over the standard gauge line as it was going to the loco depot. From the looks of it it has tried to go along the standard gauge line:eek:. The cause was deemed to be a track fault following a renewal earlier in the week.

    This picture, taken two days earlier, might help to illustrate the scene. All lines in view are broad gauge except for the road that 3801 is standing on, with the diamond crossing on which R761 derailed just in front of the 38. 88-10-20- 13.15 (3)_edited-1.jpg

    Maybe R761 was trying to preempt sister R766 which has now been gauge converted and has recently started working on the standard gauge NSW system.

    Early days on the Worth Valley, April 1967. A lot of people and a study in 60s fashion.

    There's a good chance I would have been there, but can't see myself. Just look at the number of gricers with jacket shirt and tie!

    I'm sure that I can see 52044 and Do226 in there as well as 41241.
