Mystery over Benalla Train Derailment
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) will investigate a train derailment on the Sydney to Melbourne line at Benalla. Workers from transport company Pacific National have arrived at the scene to begin clearing the tracks, but the Bureau has asked that they do not touch anything until its staff arrive later this morning. Pacific National spokesman Stephen Baines says it is still not clear what caused the derailment.
