18-Feb-1976: At about 6.00am X35 leading the Up Mount Gambier Express Goods collided with the rear of the Up Bendigo Goods on the Sunshine Independent Goods lines which was waiting to enter Tottenham Yard.  39ZF was also derailed.  Steam Crane #18 was called into to clear the obstruction and is seen here lifting X35 as in the background X48-X47 on an up Jet are diverted past on the passenger lines.
