QuoteDerailment causes train delaysAndrew Korner | 21st October 2009THE derailment of an empty coal train west of Ipswich yesterday is set to add to the misery of commuters who use the Queensland Rail network to get between the city and Rosewood.A Queensland Rail spokesman said the coal train crashed off the tracks at Ebenezer - between Thagoona and Rosewood - while travelling from the Port of Brisbane to Toowoomba, about 2.20pm.The wreckage blocked both tracks of the passenger and freight line, forcing QR to replace peak hour rail services with buses which, in turn, caused delays of up to half-an-hour for peak-hour passengers.Prior to the accident, the Ipswich to Rosewood line only operated during peak hours, with buses replacing daytime services while QR conducts repairs to the Sadliers Crossing bridge.Maintenance work on the bridge began late last month and was expected to continue until January 4, 2010.QR had initially planned to close the section of track for three months while the work took place, however, Minister for Transport Rachel Nolan intervened and services were maintained during peak hours.A revised timetable for the Rosewood to Ipswich line is available at www.translink.com.au.The cause of yesterday's derailment was unknown and QR refused to speculate, saying that the incident would be investigated.The blocked lines were not expected to be cleared until this morning. The Queensland Rail spokesman said 11 wagons were derailed in the accident.?Four of the 11 wagons are on their side,? the QR spokesman said.?The train drivers were not injured.?A Translink spokesman said buses would convey all passengers between Ipswich and Rosewood, stopping all stations, until the track was cleared.
