Summary

At about 1328 on Saturday 5 February 2011, scheduled XPT (Express Passenger Train) ST24, travelling from Melbourne to Sydney, passed signal 09-6 at Henty while it was displaying a Stop (red) indication, an event commonly referred to as a Signal Passed at Danger (SPAD). The train stopped about 95 m past signal 09-6 with the front of the leading power car on the Yankee Road level crossing. The investigation concluded that notwithstanding a reported issue with the brakes on the leading power car, the driver of train ST24 did not apply sufficient braking effort to enable train ST24 to be stopped before passing the Up home signal (09-6) at Henty.
