A BRISBANE passenger train crashed into a train station because the tracks were slippery, an investigation has found.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau found contaminants - such as wet leaves, wood, rust, oil or lubricants - were on the tracks and that affected the train's ability to brake.
"The braking effectiveness of T842 was reduced ... and the train was unable to stop before hitting the end-of-line buffer stop," the ATSB's preliminary report said.
