4206 - thanks a lot for reminding me - not!
This morning, freight train breaks down at Cowan.
Another freight train breaks down also at Cowan. And this is when the guard said that "Due to a major delays, an oil spill (we did change from UP to the DOWN tracks at Cowan), and and the second freight train breaking down at Cowan(1).
The guard said it was an oil spill for the first freight train breakdown. That may be correct, but I really couldn't see any evidence of a possible oil spill.
And now when I just looked on the Sydney Trains website, their is a third freight train that has broken down on the same line at Wyee in less than one day!1.
14:15 Sydney to Newcastle leaves at 14:16, arrives Broadmeadow at 17:53 and terminates, K1 comes to the "rescue", and leaves at 18:10, arrives Newcastle Station at 18:22 - i.e. 4 hours 6 minutes - Sydney to Newcastle! Normal time is meant to be 2 hours & 48 minutes!
