Skinningrove Zig Zag – Shunt Accident

Oops – this looks like a right purler!  Is the engine the bright shiny one we saw in an earlier post? At a guess the train got away on him and either the guard got his hand-brake on and the locomotive didn’t, or a wagon skipped the track and this was the result.  It looks like a train of empties, so I’m surprised that the locomotive couldn’t hold it on the gradient.  Looking at the collateral damage, I bet someone lost his job over this!
