Access to two central Queensland coal ports has been blocked after a train derailed south of Sarina.
Three wagons came off the tracks on the approach to the Jilalan depot early this morning.
Crews are now on site repairing the damaged lines and overhead wires.
A second, more serious accident happened several hours earlier near the Saraji mine.
Warren Phillips from Queensland Rail says there should be full access to the port by the weekend.
"At this stage I would expect that it would be in the vacinity of 48-hours, possibly slightly longer than that," he said.
"By the weekend, absolutely it should be fully recovered.
"Now we're hoping by late tonight there should be some limited network capacity back and the trains will start to move again."
