    Does that mean that the Russian Railway uses Russian Wide gauge while the sawmill uses standard gauge? I find it hard to believe that there are two gauges on one railroad.

    Sound more to me like the rails actually moved apart under the train enough to allow the wheels to drop inside. Track that isn't well-maintained (like an industrial branch) can have that happen

    Yes, exactly, sawnmill's track also is 5'. After this derailment track closed to maintenance during one month.

    April 2018, on the second photo two station tracks and track to sawnmill and you can see place of derailment in 2021:
