ABC reported that BHP has sacked the driver of a train which was deliberately derailed in Western Australia's remote Pilbara last year, carrying 30,000 tonnes of iron ore. While the driver was out of the cabin, the train took off and travelled more than 90km before being derailed from BHP's Integrated Remote Operations Centre in Perth, about 1,500km away. Two of the train's four locomotives were damaged in the derailment, along with 244 of the 268 carriages. The fully-laden train, pulling 268 carriages, was derailed early on November 5, about 120 kilometres south of Port Hedland.

The driver was sacked just before Christmas, but is claiming he was unfairly dismissed
