Rail safety issues and actions
Recommendation issued to: Pacific National
|Date issued:||02 February 2006|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
The ATSB recommends that Pacific National conduct further investigation and review into the suspension configuration of the RQZY wagon and similar wagons, with consideration to:
- the wagons' ability to handle discrete wheel impacts when in tare condition
- the wagons' ability to handle twisted track when loaded with a light weight empty container, noting that the wagon body would no longer retain its tare condition flexibility.
