Rail safety issues and actions
|Date issued:||13 February 2008|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
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. However, notification to the Genesee Wyoming Australia Train Control Centre was not as timely and updates not as regular.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that Pacific National takes action to address this safety issue.
