Wayne Prosser, General Manager for Aurizon Network’s Infrastructure Maintenance team said the QFES will use the equipment to help emergency personnel prepare for incidents involving trains.
“The QFES will practice simulation exercises where they will use heavy rescue equipment to lift the wagons safely from the railway track.
“While we never like to see rail incidents on our Network, we are really pleased that we can support the QFES in their preparedness to respond safely should an emergency situation arise,” said Mr Prosser.
The wagons were built in the late 1970s and were destined for recycling into scrap metal.
“Being able to recycle the wagons for use by QFES means they continue to serve a purpose and is another way we can give back to the community,” said Mr Prosser.
Wayne Prosser, General Manager for Aurizon Network’s Infrastructure Maintenance team officially handed over the donated track and wagons to QFES Superintendent Ross Macrae in Rockhampton.
