Summary
  • On Monday 5 January 2009, a Pacific National Melbourne to Adelaide freight train made an unscheduled stop on the approach to Horsham, Victoria when the train crew observed a loss of air from the brake system. When one of the crew investigated the cause he found irregularities with the loads on three consecutive wagons in about the middle of the train. An ISO tank container was leaking Terpene Hydrocarbon, a tractor was missing from its wagon and the cladding on another ISO tank container had come loose and was out-of-gauge. The train crew had been previously unaware of the loading problems. The leaking Terpene Hydrocarbon triggered a dangerous goods incident, which caused both the interstate rail line and the Henty Highway to be closed for several hours. The tractor load shift resulted in the tractor striking a support for the Colquhoun Street overpass near Stawell, about 80 kilometres before the train was stopped near Horsham.
