Inland rail a trifecta for Toowoomba region: mayor
The derailment of a freight train today in the Adelaide Hills would disrupt passenger services for about four days, authorities said today.
A Pacific National freight train derailed at Belair, east of Adelaide, about 10am (CDT) today, causing damage to a train station and blocking a road but causing no injuries.
The freight train, laden with 47 containers, was travelling from Melbourne to Perth when it derailed near the Main Road crossing at Belair, a South Australian Police spokesman said.
The derailment caused damage to the Glenalta railway station and blocked Main Road for about four hours.
TransAdelaide, which operates passenger services on the line, said its services in the area would be disrupted as a result of the derailment.
TransAdelaide general manager Roy Arnold said services on the line would be affected for three or four days.
The company had commissioned a fleet of buses to shuttle passengers from the affected Belair region to a nearby train station for travel into Adelaide.
