The transport safety authority says poor oversight on railway works near Yunta ultimately led to the derailment of a freight train in 2013.

In January 2013 ten wagons fell off the track after the rail buckled, about 200 kilometres south-west of Broken Hill.

Two months prior to the derailment, new track was laid and the Australian Transport Safety Bureau has found it was a major factor in the incident.
