A section of railway between Ardglen and Kankool is still closed as recovery work continues on the two bank locomotive engines that derailed on Wednesday.
Independent safety investigators and the rail safety regulator attended on Thursday afternoon and have released the site for repair and recovery work.
The Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) continues to work with Aurizon to manage the recovery and safe removal of the locomotives which started overnight.
Two heavy lift cranes are on site today to lift the locomotive engines. Following this, track repairs will take place.
All rail traffic has ceased in the section between Ardglen to Kankool in any direction with a planned return the service currently estimated to recommence on Sunday morning.
The site is being carefully controlled to ensure the safety of all those who are now involved in the site recovery and repair.
Updates will be provided as they come to hand.
