Vandalism derails Rumo fuel train (Brazil)
Author: pedrop

Hi, it happened today in the Rumo rr narrow gauge system in Guaporé, RS,  South of Brazil. Someone removed the juntion bars of the rails in a streach between a bridge and a tunnel. The leading locomotive fell to the engineer side and part of the cab was smashed but the crew scaped without injuries.
1 - 2) Pictures from local newspapers.

That's all for now

They are very, very lucky that didn't end up much worse.  Thanks for the pics,
