    Default Train derailment in Victoria

    A goods train derailed in Victoria earlier this morning. Thankfully no injuries. https://www.theage.com.au/national/v...14-p5bxzk.html

    Cheers Bob

    I am always bemused by the way the media refers to freight wagons as "carriages". To me, and probably most of my generation, "carriages" are for people, not freight. Wagons or vans are for freight.

    For some reason the movie on that website runs absolutely terrible. For those that experience the same, here is an alternative:
    Thanks for the fun

    For anyone who would like to see realistic derailments, think of how we would create the necessary physics calculations to get a pile up like that, deform all the containers, spill the contents out, rip up the track, and model the flood that caused the problem. Maybe one day.

    You couldn't. Far too many variables to even begin to know where to start. Even the best supercomputer simulations make far too many assumptions ... except, of course, for the Supercomputer that is running the simulation in which we all live!

    My (simulated) thoughts.

    I would already be happy with just re-implementing the old derailments code. It's already written and in house, so maybe one day?
    Since it is less well simulated, less people can complain about it being realistic.
    Thanks for the fun

    Sadly, it's not written for the E2 engine, so requires a rewrite (as did most of Trainz for TANE). It's not a zero sum amount of work and we have [lots of] other priorities.
