Train staff trib­ute

Weekend Herald - - Viewpoints -

I had the mis­for­tune to be in the lead­ing car­riage of the train which de­railed. I want to pay trib­ute to the train staff, AT and Brit­o­mart staff who were bril­liant in han­dling the si­t­u­a­tion.

We were kept in­formed through­out and the evac­u­a­tion of the train was car­ried out calmly, ex­pertly and with­out in­ci­dent. I do won­der where the fig­ure of 33 pas­sen­gers came from, there were about that many in the first car­riage and I would es­ti­mate at least 100 on the rest of the train. War­ren Drake, Orakei.
