Oh lovely I always dreaded derailments when I was at a rail museum. We had no equipment to lift things back in the track so everything was manual with ramps, jacks and wooden blocks.

Haha yep done that a few times.  Build it up and try to drag it back on.  This one required cranes though

Yup, a couple of 0-4-0 Barclay steamers 0-4-0 Planet and Hensley diesel, there were also a couple of 0-6-0 diesels but never out of the shed in my time there as they were too big and heavy for the weak bendy track. We had enough trouble red railing things without them dropping off the line too.
