Chapter 5 The big crash

“Hello control, this is train 320 at Deka siding, the light is red, any trains coming?”

“No” I replied, “the section seems to be down, proceed cautiously”

The time was approximately half past 7 in the evening and this was the last train from Victoria Falls.

Nearly an hour passes and no train emerges from the section to the next siding.

“Control” crackles the speaker, “we’ve hit a mine and are derailed.”

“Anybody hurt” I asked.

“No, just shaken up.”
