Queensland Rail under scrutiny after fault traps almost 60 passengers underground | Australia news | The Guardian
Hippozino Casino Bonus Codes for 2018 Almost 60 passengers were left trapped underground after a fault caused by one of Queensland Rail’s New Generation Rollingstock trains damaged power lines, leading to widespread delays.
In an incident set to fuel more criticism of the new trains’ rollout, electrical contact between a train and overhead lines caused damage to the power supply on Saturday night.
It resulted in a second train on the Brisbane airport line breaking down in the tunnel between Roma Street and Central stations at around 8.30pm.
After being stalled for more than an hour, passengers had to be evacuated via an emergency exit, with one person reportedly needing treatment for anxiety. The power issue was still being resolved by 1pm on Sunday, with services to Brisbane’s south and east rerouted to avoid inner-city station South Brisbane.
