um but dah it has only been in service since 1998
this has been big news here in qld, because we rarely see train derailments of this size happen to passenger trains that run in qld.
they havent fully investigated it yet but some sources say that it could be that the train was going too fast.
the section of tracks where it derailed were checked the morning before and they were reported as being "ok"
