Picture of / about 'Alpha' Queensland - Railway bridge collapse at Alpha Creek, 19411 - Railway bridge collapse at Alpha Creek, 1941 (Contributed by: QldPics)

This incident occurred on 8 April 1941 at Alpha on the Central Railway, inland from Rockhampton. The bridge across Alpha Creek collapsed as a goods train was crossing with the locomotive dropping and killing the driver and the fireman who were crushed between the firebox and the tender.

The locomotive was no. 147 of the C16 class and its weight was 80.5 tons. Before salvage work could be undertaken the creek flooded and the locomotive collapsed into the water, being later recovered and taken to Rockhampton where it was repaired and put back into operation.
