BHP brought to a halt by runaway train

Runaway BHP train deliberately derailed near Port Hedland after travelling 92km with no driver

The driver of the BHP-operated train got out to inspect an issue with one of its 268 wagons early yesterday and it took off without him, the Australian Transport Safety Bureau says.

A runaway train laden with iron ore has been deliberately derailed by BHP after it travelled for more than 90 kilometres without a driver in WA's remote Pilbara region.

"A Western Australia iron ore train has been derailed near Turner on route to Port Hedland this morning".

To stop the runaway train, the company deliberately derailed it at a set of points about 120km from BHP's Port Hedland mine operations.

A BHP spokeswoman told the West Australian newspaper no one was injured.

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau has sent two investigators to determine if any rail safety protocols were breached in the incident.

An investigation into the incident is being carried out, ATSB said, and that damage to the train was "substantial".

While the driver was outside the train, it took off with no one on board.

Yahoo7 has contacted BHP for comment, but has not received a response as yet.

"The driver alighted from the locomotive to inspect an issue with a wagon", it said in a report.
