I guess the crew really wanted Pizza Hut pizza tongue.gif was this staged, or an actual derailment? derailments are all too common on my rush-laid track. Last one sent a Conrail SD45 to the floor mad.gif to the point where repair would cost as much as a new locomoitve, so I'm in the process of redoing the majority of the track on my layout...

Real model derailment. I think we have a funny switch around the corner and the #1 axle keeps popping off. That was the second time (even with restricted speed) that it derailed
