THE newly made-over Ghan Train has had several windows smashed by rocks being thrown while it was travelling through Alice Springs on Monday afternoon.
A Journey Beyond spokeswoman said Journey Beyond Rail Expeditions confirmed seven carriage windows were damaged while The Ghan was travelling through Heavy Tree Gap, while en route to Darwin.
“Seven windows have been damaged in total and no guests or crew have been injured,” they said.
“There have been no delays to the services as a result of the damage and The Ghan is expected to arrive in Darwin as scheduled.

“Journey Beyond has contacted the Alice Springs police regarding the matter and will wait for further instructions from authorities.”
