On 31 March 2019, freight train 7MB9, operated by Specialised Container Transport (SCT), derailed while exiting the refuge at Goulburn, New South Wales. A total of five wagons derailed, with wagons coming to a rest foul of both the Up and Down main lines. Prior to the derailment, the driver of train 7MB9 was authorised to pass signal G38 at Stop. This signal could not be cleared due to a track circuit fault. The track circuit fault occurred the evening before, after train 2343 passed through the refuge. At that time, the network controller contacted the on-call signal electrician and it was agreed that trains could continue by passing the signal at Stop.
