A cold Antarctic wind blew through Johannesburg this morning. Winter is definitely on its way. But the chill did not end there. Carriages of the Rovos luxury train ran away while changing of the locomotives at Centurion was taking place. Seventeen coaches with 59 passengers were derailed just before it reached Pretoria Station when the control room diverted the runaway coaches off the main line. It was a mess. Sadly two people plus an unborn child lost their lives today. Back at Metrorail not knowing that all this was happening, Ntaoleng sat down to brunch consisting of runaways. Walkie-talkies and runaways are favourite South African delicacies. Walkie-talkies are chicken feet with the heads and runaways are just the chicken legs. Maybe like by many but they are not my cup of tea.
