Locomotive derailed

“Wooden props were used to support a locomotive which was derailed and almost crashed on to the road near Auburn railway station yesterday. The locomotive, which was hauling a railway workers’ special, jumped a set of points. Train services were disrupted for eight hours until two o’clock, and passengers travelling from Liverpool, Parramatta, Granville and Auburn were provided with bus transport.”
