Hard to believe this can happen in 2018!

Low tech rocks on the line saved the day!

The Guardian, eh? That's nice: no biased reporting there!

Read about this in the newspaper here. At first, thought it must have been a few feet or something like that. By the end of the report I realised it was very much more, but only the video makes me understand how fast it was going.

I'm surprised that rocks on the line worked. Danger of disastrous derailment?

I guess it was the lesser of two evils... Glad it worked, anyway!
