A FREIGHT train has derailed in central Queensland, causing delays for passenger, coal and freight train services throughout the region.
The 33-wagon Queensland Rail (QR) driver-only freight train was carrying fruit from Cairns to Brisbane when it derailed near Raglan, between Gladstone and Rockhampton, at 2pm (AEST) today.
The driver was not injured in the derailment.
The derailment blocked both tracks on the north coast line and damaged overhead line equipment.
QR staff would begin the recovery process once preliminary investigations were completed.
Gentle Annie Road, a local road about 200 metres off the Bruce Highway, is also blocked.
QR says passengers travelling along the train line can expect minor delays.
The northbound tilt train that left Brisbane for Rockhampton at 11am (AEST) today, stopped at Gladstone at 5.12pm, with the passengers transported to Rockhampton by bus.
The southbound Tilt Train that left Cairns at 9.15am this morning will terminate at Rockhampton tomorrow morning.
QR will then bus the passengers to Bundaberg, where they will join another tilt train service to Brisbane.
