    I saw this on another forum, if I remember right it was in Australia.

    [h=2]A brand-new multi-million dollar locomotive made it all the way from the U.S. to West Africa before it fell 20-feet while being unloaded from a delivery ship. TODAY’s Natalie Morales reports. [/h]

    I am sure some parts can be used, but who knows how much. I noticed in the video that the frame buckled. Yeah this loco is pretty much a boat anchor now. I hope the shipping co has good insurance for that one.

    It was an Australian derivative design, but it was going to Africa to haul manganese ore.
