A trolleybus having troubles and slipping due to wet snow mud on a light grade. But this is quite unexpected behavior for usual trolleybus because there are many buses with automatic transmission, as well as ones with manual gearbox, including articulated with mid or tail driving axle, all of them climbing the same grade without such hard wheelslip. Hence, the road surface isn't really so slippery to completely prevent climbing. The only reason should be that this specific type of trolleybus has a feature always to start very roughly and couldn't do it in a more soft manner :)
At Theebine a train has come up the grade off the disused Kingaroy Branch. Unfortunately the grass was long and dry. The train was long. The locos with lots of sand on the rails and a driver in the cab of each 1720 class loco eventually struggled and inched their way through until free. Here's a few of minutes of this that must have taken over an hour
Tram derailment recovery 24 Mar 2011, Moscow
Tram car #4308, working at the moment on 35 route, going northbound direction, derailed in Moscow, at the end of Dubininskaya street, about 13..14 h 24 Mar 2011. Only the first (front) bogie derailed. Trams of both directions were blocked (as the derailed car obstructed opposite track clearance by its back), a general traffic jam formed.

Вагон сошёл только передней тележкой. Было прервано движение в обоих направлениях, поскольку сошедший вагон нарушил габарит встречного пути своей задней частью.

Twickenham to Teddington by trolleybus on the first day of operation May 16th 1931.
There are chunks of the journey missing but I have put what film clips there are into the right order.
Note the trams still in service. The driver had to drive these trams from a position completely open to the elements.
Along with the trolleybus a new tram was also entering service with a completely enclosed cab..This was the "Feltham" type tram.
The half cab trolleybus design, seen in the video, was soon to be superseded by the well known flat fronted design. The half cab trolleybuses known as "Diddlers" were retired in 1948. The last London trolleybus ran in May 1962 along the route shown in the video. Today the London bus route 281 follows the same route.
