Albury train fire

Published: 6th November 2007

Albury Central and Albury Civic responded to a train fire at Albury Railway Station in the early hours of this morning. On arrival firefighters found smoke issuing from inside the train carriage and a diesel generator that powers the buffet car. The buffet car was the second carriage behind the locomotive. The fire appeared to have started in the diesel generator engine which is located underneath the buffet car. The fire was extinguished within a couple of minutes using firefighting foam to prevent any further damage to the locomotive and other carriages.
