The 10 wagons that fell off the tracks in Sunday’s train derailment between Narromine and Tomingley, have been removed according to a spokesperson at the Australian Rail Track Corporation. 

As of Thursday evening the wagons had been cleared and the team started work on the damaged tracks.

“There's a little bit more clean up to do of the grain, but truck repairs/restoration will start [Friday] morning with a view to be completed this weekend, most likely Saturday,” The Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) spokesperson said. 

The ARTC are working with rail operators regarding the services. 

“It comes down to the need of the customer to get the freight to market, cost and destination - but there is an alternative route available. Some operators may choose to stable their trains until the track has reopened,” the spokesperson said.
