Tilt train goes off the rails

Townsville Bulletin - - News -

A CAIRNS-bound Tilt Train de­railed near Ing­ham on Satur­day. A Queens­land Rail spokes­woman said one wheel on a lead car­riage be­came dis­lodged. There were no in­juries and Queens­land Rail ar­ranged al­ter­na­tive trans­port to take the 57 pas­sen­gers to Cairns. The sec­tion of the north coast line was closed down while in­ves­ti­ga­tors de­ter­mined the cause of the in­ci­dent. The spokes­woman said Queens­land Rail would work as quickly as pos­si­ble to clear the track once the in­ves­ti­ga­tors had fin­ished but it was un­clear how long the sec­tion would re­main closed to traf­fic. Queens­land Rail would like to apol­o­gise for any in­con­ve­nience caused to cus­tomers, she said.
