    Disaster strikes the CFR when the St. Bernard's Station redevelopment is pushed later and later back with only 4 days until the Grand opening! The big work order has resulted in safety; general maintenance and care become one of the last priorities. Failure to inform the fitters of a slipping reverser and carelessly leaving the brakes off when both the Driver and fireman leave the cab to help the guard uncouple the stiff coupling could result in disastrous consequences leaving the grand opening of St. Bernard's the last thing on their minds!

    Devastation when not one but 2 massive crashes take place on the CFR. Sloppy and careless attention from one of the driving teams has a huge conscience on the railways future. Are they really to blame though? The St. Bernard's Station redevelopment program has pushed very one to their limits. Is it the time scale for completion to be blamed for the lack of attention to safety, general maintenance and care? How will the railway pull back from this one and will the station really have that grand opening in 4 days time? Find out next this on CFR End of the Line.

    The 12.45 goods train from Priory goods yard was late off the siding as there was a delay in emptying the train. It has now missed its time slot and the rest of the afternoon is timetabled to be busy. The is no chance of fitting in to the operations of the railway without delaying other service so a early running goods going the same way was stopped and two long set were made into one. Two engines are tackeled with the task of getting to there destination on time without delay or wheel slip. Not a problem?
