Train blocked

Townsville Bulletin - - Front Page -

A TRAIN was lucky to stay on the tracks after it ploughed through con­crete blocks on a rail­way line last night.

A Queens­land Rail worker called po­lice to re­port the in­ci­dent near Rooneys Bridge in Rail­way Es­tate about 8pm.

He told po­lice con­crete blocks had been de­lib­er­ately placed on the train tracks and he was con­cerned an­other train could be de­railed.

But a Queens­land Po­lice spokesman said po­lice and QR staff had walked along the train line, but could not find the blocks.
