Hi Bob and List Members,
 
Maybe if this sharp curve had a guard rail against the inside rail - as we have discussed recently on this list - the derailment might not have happened!
 
Thanks always Bob for your terrific work!

Looks like a load of very large pipe segments. Some good detail of the load blocking.
