Queensland Rail (QR) says it is stunned by a recent incident at a level crossing near Moranbah, where a car and a fully loaded coal train almost collided.
The incident happened near the Isaac River crossing on Monday afternoon - it is believed the utility crossed the lines with a coal train less than 100 metres away from the intersection.
Mark Hairsine from QR says there have been numerous campaigns about level crossing safety and drivers should not be taking such risks.
"The message is simple - all trains take a long time to pull up and the consequences are quite severe for the motorist," he said.
"You don't often get a second chance. So the message is simple - obey the road rules, take your time, don't save those few minutes, because you could risk your life."
