The atmosphere on the bridge just before colliding with the rock was a tad unprofessional to say the least.
The engineers were some of the real heroes, keeping the power on as best they could until forced out by the flooding.
Main doco here:
Follow up with some more details on the engineering at the start:
Let me know what you think.
