Derailment halts trains between Adelaide and Darwin

The owner-operator of the Adelaide to Darwin rail line, Genesee & Wyoming Australia said tonight a derailment 30 km north of Marla in South Australia’s Outback, may delay north and south bound services on the route “slightly”.


Earlier today, the last three freight cars of a south bound consignment derailed, damaging about 400 metres of track.


The company has mobilised engineering and track restoration crews to the site tonight and will be in a position tomorrow to confirm on the line’s re-opening, says a media release.


While one north bound rail movement to Darwin has been held in Adelaide temporarily, the derailment is not expected to cause major disruption to the rail corridor.
