The unprecedented monsoonal rains that are causing record flooding in North Queensland have resulted in a freight train becoming trapped and then toppled by the floodwaters. The train had been stored on the highest point of the line to protect it against the expected flood, a strategy that has been used successfully in the past but not this time.

A great video clip. These have been the worst floods in Australia during my lifetime and I'm 80. Thanks for sharing.

Cheers,
