Big report I've skimmed through it and will read in a bit more detail later. If you want to see this effect in action check this video (referenced in the report itself)

The way the RAIB phrased the report summary etc it was as though it was a nuclear train and they were trying to hush it up, although the photos proved otherwise. Seemed reluctant to mention the type of container it was in the summary, in a rather suspicious way. Certainly I was expecting it to be one until I saw the first relevant image of the wagon. Although are nukes permitted to travel at 70mph?

It was a 'Tesco' train.

And in Toronto about 6 weeks ago.

I gave up trying to get to the office that day after it took over half an hour to go 1 stop, less than a kilometre, on the other side of town.

Thankfully, no-one was injured in either incident.

Thankfully this one wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been if the train had struck the van! I don't think I have heard of a closer near-miss than 100mm!

Essentially "leaves", resulting in train sliding the entire way into the platform, but they also point out that Voyagers seem to be especially bad when it comes to handling low adhesion compared to other passenger units, and suggest the fitting of automatic sanders (rather than the current "emergency" sanders).
