I don't know but I believe Southern are blaming the derailment on the guards.

Not the best pic, I admit.

It was of course due to conductors being sick.

Could you explain what you mean, please, since it's not apparent to me, from the pic posted by sarahj.

Was the train derailed by trap points which are not visible because it is sitting on them?

It appears from the picture that the train has derailed on T1878 trap points, which is what they are designed to do if they are not set for the movement to take place.

How far back from that photo is the shunt signal? Looks like the unit has carried quite a bit too- quite a shock for the crew on board.

Not so sure. I know it's not to be seen in this shot from the rear.
