Remarks & Notes 
While I was working loaded Pacific National coal train BO552 on 31st January 2008 it decided to derail at Burilda, between Werris Creek & Breeza.The train consisted of 2 locomotives & 42 wagons with a trailing load of 4200 tonnes & was doing 68 kph when the accident occured.The 10th to the 28th wagon came off with the NHJF wagon pictured (the 18th wagon) sustaining the heaviest damage.Trains started running 5 days later after the site had been cleaned up & the track repaired.
