Queensland Rail (QR) says it does not have plans to move small freight from the state's north to Brisbane off trains and onto roads.
The Rail, Tram and Bus Union says its members have been told changes to the movement of small freight would come into effect from January next year.
QR's north Queensland representative, Tony Lucas, says the organisation was looking into a proposed service change for a customer.
"There was a proposal being developed at an operational level to change one rail freight service so QR could provide a new service for a north Queensland customer into Brisbane and southern states," he said.
But he says senior management have not seen or approved the proposal and it will not go ahead.
"QR will not be changing any freight, rail freight services into Bowen, Ayr or Tully in north Queensland," he said.
"Rail services at these centres will continue and their depots will also continue to act normally."
