The Australian Transport Safety Bureau has opened an investigation into the derailment of a Bowmans Rail freight train last week.
According to a newly-published investigation filing on the ATSB’s website, Bowmans Rail freight train 1501S derailed just after 6am on Friday, July 28, roughly 13 track kilometres north of the Adelaide CBD.
Three wagons derailed, resulting in damage to the train and the track, according to the filing. No injuries were reported.
The investigation is expected to be completed by July 2018.
According to the filing, the train had left Pelican Point, on the coast near the SA-Victoria boarder, and was headed to Bowmans’ intermodal terminal in Balaklava, along the ARTC’s Melbourne-Crystal Brook corridor.
