Safety issue

Notwithstanding the communication difficulties and the trauma being experienced by the train drivers, notification of the accident to the Pacific National Divisional Control Centre was practically immediate and subsequent updates regular.

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that Pacific National takes action to address this safety issue.
