Train Carefully Reverses over Collapsed Bridge due to Flooding


Occurred on January 26, 2020 / Prairie, Queensland, Australia

Info from Licensor: "I went to Prairie Creek (in Prairie 330km West of Townsville) for a look at the water levels after a night of heavy rainfall. I noticed that the train was stopped near the creek. When I got closer, I witnessed the train on the eastern side of the bridge as the bridge had started to collapse under the train. I am unaware of the exact events, however it looked like they had taken the safest option to pull the train up until notified to reverse it back off the tracks, which they were able to do safely."
