Derailment of train M211 ( Brazil)
Author: pedrop

Hi, today about 5:00 AM empty ore M211 derailed at Km 845 due to a broken rail. Three U20C lay on their side and eight GDE class ore cars derailed. At this time,  7:45 PM, two cranes are coming to my area on way  to the wreck site. Hope they can pass here tomorrow morning. They are the Vale mining Takraf and VLI Kirow cranes.

1 - 3) Units 2577, 2696 and 2699.

The engineer hurt a leg and was sent to hospital in Belo Horizonte City.
Pictures from a friend.

Sorry to see there was a derailment. Glad the engineer got out alive.

That soil is red clay and I bet when it gets wet it will stick on to your shoes until they weigh enough to come off while you are walking.

Yes, it is. Terrible when we find a road with that soil in the rain season.
