A driverless, 268-car iron ore sight was derailed in Western Australia on Monday — though usually after it trafficked scarcely 60 miles but an engineer, officials said.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau said a train, operated by Australian mining association BNP, was roving from Newman to a coastal city of Port Headland when a motorist stopped a sight to check a car.
But when a operative left a locomotive, a empty sight rolled away.
The train, with 4 locomotives and 268 cars, trafficked 57 miles before being “deliberately derailed” during a siding about 74 miles outward of Port Headland.
The sight was roving about 110 miles per hour when it was derailed, according to a Reuters analysis. The ride reserve group pronounced a sight postulated “substantial” damage.
A BHP mouthpiece told a West Australian journal no one was injured. All sight operations from a cave have been dangling as a occurrence is examined by officials.
“We are operative with a suitable authorities to examine a situation,” a orator told a news outlet.
