Cable incline

Two loaded wagons running off the bottom of a cable incline at Tipong Colliery. Were warned to stand well clear of the track as the wagons descended. We soon found out why! about 100 feet before the bottom the wagons were stopped, the cable brake was released and the wagons freewheeled down the rest of the incline with the cable still attached and flailing behind. Not a good health and safety practice!
