LOGISTICS company Qube says it is investigating the derailment of a train hauling 2600 tonnes of grain to Port Kembla early on Tuesday.

According to Qube, no-one was hurt in the derailment however 39 wagons left the track near Farmborough Heights on the Moss Vale to Unanderra freight line.

“The two drivers aboard were given support by ambulance officers but were uninjured,” Qube stated.

The train was understood to have been heading to the Quattro facility at Port Kembla with a full load of wheat from Southern NSW when the incident occurred at 5am Tuesday.

Several transport and safety investigations have already begun and Qube says it is helping authorities with their inquiries.

“It is unclear when the track will be cleared but crews are working now to clear the site.”
