Derailment of grain train J484 (Brazil)
Author: pedrop

Another derailment happened not far from my area due to bad tracks in the VLI narrow gauge line to Bahia.  This time,  loaded  grain J484 coming from Pirapora branch derailed between Mascarenhas (EMX) and Cordisburgo (EOR) sidings early in the morning of April1st.  Two GE U20C and eight cars were damaged. VLI sent two cranes to the site.  For while, the  priority is the MoW gang build a side track to allow the trains pass by the location. Then they will remove the locomotives and cars.
