Wednesday 9 September 1908, The Sydney Morning Herald


MOREE, Tuesday.

What might have been a serious railway catastrophe was narrowly averted last evening at Mungie Bundie, eight miles from Moree. The driver of the incoming Inverell train noticed a sudden jolting, and immediately applied the brakes. He found six trucks derailed. The passengers were sent to Moree on trucks. The flying gang left Moree last night. It is anticipated the service will be in order to-day. Nobody was injured.

It is surmised the accident was caused by recent heavy rains.
