At about 14151 on 10 March 2008, train 6MP9 was carrying containerised general freight from Melbourne to Perth when it derailed 11 wagons near Hines Hill in Western Australia. Although there were dangerous goods on the train, they were not involved in the derailment.

The investigation determined that wagon ABFY2797U derailed due to a 'screwed journal' as a result of a wheel bearing failure.
