Hi all and welcome to another STV Blog.
Major delays and the partial closure of the Central Coast and Newcastle line between Hamilton and Fassifern were experienced today due to a fire that broke out on Pacific National Locomotive NR8 travelling from Whyalla (South Australia) to Newcastle (New South Wales).
The fire broke out somewhere between Fassifern and Hamilton.
The damage was extensive and there is no word on whether NR8 will be scrapped or not.
The fire was caused by an engine failure.
Thats all the information i have at the moment.
If any more information comes to hand ill type an update Blog.
Thank you all for reading.
