NEVER AGAIN (more or less)
Low speed flange climb derailments...... happen on the best of properties, to the best of operations.
For years, these derailments were denied, suppressed. Hundreds of trainmasters suffered sleepless nights, as they tried to submit a cause for these derailments that could not have occurred because "everything's in spec."
Sure thing, everything was in spec. The track was in spec. The wheels were in spec. The speed was in spec. Everything was in spec and the train was on the ground.
But I'm here to tell you that there is no shame in low speed flange climb derailment!!! There are reasons, actual reasons for these events, and there are actual causes that do not require more twists, turns, contortions and word-smithing than a campaign speech, or dinner with the in-laws!
Even better, there are actual mitigations, solutions even, that can reduce the probability of such events to, well if not zero, real close to zero.
So contact us, I mean me, right now, and get the help you need. The first 15,000,000 to call or email will get the exclusive Ten90 decoder ring, which will introduce you to, and explain, such terms as "equalization," "twist," "warp," "angle of attack." In addition, the first 14,999,999 to call or email will get their own L/V pocket protector!!!!
Hurry, supplies are limited.
