Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
More than 30 passengers and staff on board a passenger train travelling between Moree and Narrabri were forced to evacuate on Monday morning after the train struck a metal object, resulting in a spillage near Edgeroi.
The explorer train service from Moree to Sydney reportedly struck a metal object on the line about 8km north of Edgeroi which resulted in the rupture of its diesel and coolant tanks.
Narrabri Fire and Rescue firefighters were confronted with 500 litres of diesel and 200 litres of coolant spread over approximately 200 metres when they attended the scene.
All 35 passengers and staff had to vacate the train as the engines had to be shut down, preventing the operation of the air conditioning and toilet facilities.
Due to the height between the train and the ground, firefighters had to set up ladders to allow passengers to safely exit the train utilising a NSW Rural Fire Service tanker and a life rescue line as handrails.
