I don't have pics altho my contact may send some eventually. And I don't have further details of exactly what and why.

This is speculation, but the fact that the derailment "included" a turnout might suggest a cause related to that, such as excessive point gap. But it easily could be something totally different. Without seeing it, I can't offer any concrete info.

Having ridden both in the cab and in coaches on some rough track I can say that it can get pretty rough in the train and still be relatively safe. Well, unless you need to use the can. Then I wished I had three hands.
