- Passenger Rail Services back on Track after Train Line Cleared
- Passengers were forced to use bus services from 1.45pm on Monday when a Pacific National freight train laden with 6480 tonnes
of coal from Bloomfield Colliery derailed, blocking rail lines in both directions. Mr White said it was too soon to determine what
caused the incident. He said Pacific National was assisting the Federal Government-run Australian Transport Safety Bureau's
investigation into the derailment.
