On the morning of Thursday 18 August 2022 a Pacific National standard gauge grain train arriving into #3 road at McIntyre Loop had the tracks split apart beneath the wagons at the rear, leaving their bogies in the dirt. The remaining wagons were shunted clear to clear the tracks, leaving the derailed wagons to be recovered later.
