    \

    Quite easily !!!

    Seriously though

    The line was not completed and they hadn't extended it for the last two stations.
    Nevertheless it was running with no problem between the 15 or so down-line stations. Just out of sight to the right of the picture is the nearly completed extension.

    The drivers usually relied on the auto brake at this point as there were no buffers at the end of the line and it allowed them to line the rollingstock up with the platform. The auto system failed ( an electronic sensor on the track that registers the train - cuts the power and this applies the air brakes at precisely the correct time)

    The electronics whizz kids ( Toshiba Industrial) were installing the signalling and auto brake sensors on the new section and had disconnected all systems for 5 minutes while they ran some continuity checks!!!

    The driver realised he was in deep shit and slammed on the emergency brakes - otherwise the whole thing would have shot off the end and landed in the middle of a busy intersection in rush hour.

    There were a few personal injuries - mainly people who were standing up waiting to get off and suprisilngly very little damage to the loco .

    The supporting pillar had to be demolished and replaced though as it had shifted and cracked!

    You can see the gap between the support plinth and the cross beam - it shouldn't be there !!!

    All in a days work !

    Think they hosed him down afterwards !!!

    After a court case I got full recovery for the insurers from Toshiba Disneyland - sorry Toshiba Industrial !!!
    The continuity test should have been after the line shut down for the night - The "techies" were behind schedule and their boss from Nipponland was arriving the next day - potential for a HUGE loss of "face" had to be avoided -

    $1,600,000 US when all added up !
    Gotta nice little bonus off that one

    Nice little claim there - got me 4 days in Indonesia to sort it out !!!

    After 14 years or so sorting out the result of OH BUGGER moments for insurance companies, I have shitload more pics will dig them out !!!

    That sounds like a very excellent job you have there.
