Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Beresfield is a railway station on the Main North railway line, in the western suburbs of Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia. In 2002 Beresfield was fully redeveloped and includes new easy access facilities, station signage and booking office. Beresfield was the site of a major rail accident when on 23 October 1997, a coal train collided into the rear of another coal train standing on the same tracks. The cause was a failure to stop at a signal. Six people were injured including the station master and a commuter who jumped from the platform moments before the collision. The crash resulted in dozens of coal-wagons tumbling over the platform and across the tracks, closing all four tracks of the Main North Line and a virtual demolition of Beresfield station.
