The Train That Wanted To Fly

Last week as I was dropping my wife off at the train station I got a call from a friend telling me to not let her get on the train. She was just getting out of the car and saying goodbye to the kids. When I had a decent look the train was surrounded by tape and there were about four fire engines at the end of the platform.

Apparently the trains brakes malfunctioned and the train went through the end of the line and ended up propped up on a rock and lump of concrete up against a pole.

Luckily no-one was seriously hurt.

The joys of always having a camera with you 🙂

Car Crash

Sometimes you don’t have to go out to get images… Sometimes they come to you.

This happened just along the road from where I live within view of my house. I waited until the ambulance had left before I headed down wondering how the police would feel about me being there taking photos. I needn’t have worried as at least three police officers came up to me (thinking I was busted) but only to talk about my camera 🙂

It appeared the car lost control going round the corner, rode up the bank and flipped onto its roof. The corner had just been resealed a couple of days before and it still didn’t have its top layer on yet as well as being wet but they may have just been going too fast…

No one was killed but not sure how badly hurt they were.

Crash on the corner of Victoria Street and Ghuznee Street from a couple of weeks back. This is a good example why a MG and an SUV shouldn’t play together.
