Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
A Brisbane-bound freight train containing food and beer derailed near the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) workshop on Sloane Street this morning.
About 4.15am on March 31, five wagons went off the tracks, preventing any passage of trains into or out of Goulburn.
This afternoon, an ARTC spokesperson said the independent rail investigator had completed its onsite investigation.
"Repair and recovery works have begun," the ARTC spokesperson said.
"No trains will run through Goulburn until recovery and rerailing works are completed."
A Goulburn Station worker said train services had been replaced by road coaches, meantime.
The ARTC was not able to confirm when normal services would return, but would provide updates throughout.
Greg Price from the Southern Tablelands Rail Users Group was surveying the scene and gave his theory as to what happened.
"It seems to me that the train was too long to get into the yard and derailed on the way out," Mr Price said.
