Dear Daz,

I have found the actual UTube link, and thought I would post it as it seems to have a touch more detail.

I am wondering if the chap standing by the line was looking out for trains for the lorry? He had waved to a passing vehicle beforehand, and wasn't looking to move purposefully away from where he was, but looked to be doing so when the lorry was virtually alongside him. Look closely before the loco Gert's to the end of the small platform (left of loco, and just after where a signal arm seems to extend over part of the track), someone seems to seen jumping from the loco. How the trailer under-bars didn't 'do' for the chap I don't know... certainly knocked his hardhat off rather a long way. The loco obviously derailed, but considering the element of speed I think all in all the whole thing could have been much worse. That chap by the rail side is certainly one very lucky person!

Regards, Bernard
