Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
Final preparations are being made to get trains back on track in north-west NSW, with a major rail line set to reopen tomorrow afternoon.
It's been three weeks since a coal train derailment badly damaged a rail bridge at Boggabri.
The Australian Rail Track Corporation says safety assessors have been on site, scaffolding surrounding four new bridge pylons has been removed, and a site clean-up is underway.
Meantime, trucks are transporting the last of the stranded containerised grain to the West Tamworth freight depot where it will be railed to Sydney.
Dale Smith, from Namoi Logistics. has been co-ordinating the movement of more than 1,000 containers on dozens of heavy vehicles.
"Singles and B-doubles, carrying two 27-tonne containers on each truck. Over Tamworth way, there's probably been 600-700 (containers), and a similar amount go Warren way, onto the train lines down at Warren."
