Preliminary report: 21 Aprl 2011

At 1209  on 24 February 2011 a suburban passenger train (215A) with 17 passengers on board was being routed from the Up South Main Line into number 5 platform at the Adelaide Railway Station. At about the same time a second passenger train (G231) with 22 passengers on board that was departing the Adelaide Railway Station passed signal 141 located at the end of number 3 platform at low speed. The signal was displaying a stop (red) indication.

A short time later the drivers of both trains realised that they would come into conflict and applied their train's brakes, too late to avoid a collision. There were no injuries as a result of the collision but both trains sustained minor damage.

The investigation is continuing
