    I'm not sure if this passes the newsworthy/threadworthy test or not. Time will tell.

    If nothing else, it's an easy setup for Mad Max/Road Warrior jokes.

    Example:

    Here's footage of the safety team on its way to derail the train...

    Is an inside joke. We have a thread police in our midst; a quiet hero who sits in judgement of what is and is not worthy of a new Pit Stop thread. He's the hero the GTXF deserves, but not the one it needs right now.

    Dun dun dunnnnnnnnnnn.

    Two reasons this thread is lame and should be closed:

    1: They are cars not wagons.
    2: No video of the derailment.

    Be patient, gentlemen. Remember that Australia has only had electricity for about thirty years now, and the internet is just now becoming available in the major cities hamlets. News can be slow coming from such remote areas.

    Apparently this amateur Aeroscope footage has been carried out of the country and made available to the internet after being rowed to Papua New Guinea in an outrigger canoe.



    Hopefully we'll receive more images, videos, and commentary in the weeks and months to come.
