60s are better built than a 66, can pull more and use less fuel. Shoddy/non-existant maintenance is to blame for most of the current problems.

Re: Class 60

EWS/DBS have a policy of not putting anything out to tender that could be used by a rival company - expect any 60s that are up for sale anytime soon to be heavily stripped/robbed wrecks.

He wasn't going at 120, he was doing 90 before the brake was applied. The driver hid behind the desk.

Re: Class 70

It's worth pointing out that the driver of that HST hit behind the desk after applying the emergency brake - that's what saved him.
