An independent cancer cluster expert will visit a central Queensland rail yard today.
There have been nine cases of cancer amongst workers at the Jilalan rail depot in the past 20 years, with four diagnosed in the past three years.
Dr Tim Driscoll will gather information to aid a Queensland Health investigation.
He says rail yard employees have already raised several concerns with him.
"Asbestos, powerlines, exposure to various substances around over 20, 30 years and they're not sure what they were," he said.
"[There is a] little bit of concern about being next to the cane farms and whether there could have been pesticides coming across.
"In these sort of things there's often a relatively small group that are very concerned, a relatively small group who are not concerned at all and the rest of the people in the middle."
