Derailment in Braz, Austria
likely due to a brake defect a freight train loaded with new Dacia cars
derailed in the early morning of June, 16, 2010 on a downhill section
on the Arlberg route. The engine, about half of the auto racks, around
100 cars and a larger track segment were destroyed. The engineer
was lucky in this desaster, he was transported with minor injuries to
the local hospital. Fortunately no other person was affected directly
by this accident, also the surrounding homes remained
intact. Albrecht Weber was at Braz send his pictures to Red Rock
