At 8.15am this morning Townsville firecrews responded to a locomotive on fire west of Stuart on the Great Northern Railway.
Aurizon's 2831, lead loco on a combined acid and fertilizer for Phosphate Hill, caught fire while climbing the 1 in 90 grade through Oak Valley, coming to a halt under the Flinders Highway bridge.
It took fire crews half an hour to extinguish the flames and the train was eventually recovered back to Stuart.
The fire appears contained to the engine compartment and appears to have been a fairly typical fuel line failure fire occasionally seen in GE FDLs. Several such fires have occurred in 2800s during their 25-years in operation.
