Investigation into Waterfall derailment

On 31 January 2003, a passenger train service from Sydney to Port Kembla overturned at high speed and collided with stanchions and a rock cutting near Waterfall NSW. The train driver and six passengers were killed. The Ministry of Transport completed its investigation into the incident in early 2004, delivering 66 safety recommendations. The Special Commission of Inquiry is due to deliver its final report later this year. This paper describes some aspects of the investigations conducted into the causes of the incident and the responses of some of the various agencies involved.
