Near miss

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

WHIT­SUN­DAY res­i­dents are again re­minded to stay clear of the cane rail net­work after some track in­fra­struc­ture was in­ter­fered with on Mon­day night. Cane Sup­ply Man­ager for the Proser­pine re­gion, Ron Worth, said this re­sulted in a lo­co­mo­tive and bins en­ter­ing a sid­ing and almost col­lid­ing with bins al­ready in the sid­ing. “In ad­di­tion to be­ing il­le­gal, in­ter­fer­ing with cane rail­way in­fra­struc­ture can cause se­ri­ous in­jury to loco crews and dam­age to rolling stock,” he said.

Mr Worth said the in­ci­dent was re­ported to the po­lice.
