Feet of clay

So, it turns out even trains can have flatties.

According to the lady from the train, who was in the pool with us at the motel, the Spirit was running late out of Bundaberg, so the driver was pushing along - just a bit too quickly, so the automatic override thought he'd collapsed over the controls, and slammed on the brakes, sanding the wheels flat on the bottom and subjecting us all to rattles for the rest of the journey.

Odd though that the same thing didn't happen after the emergency stop on the Ghan last year.
