I think it was caused by heavy run off undermining the track - see all water lying around and access road closed due to flooding.

Yes, two in one day -

"A massive Rio Tinto iron ore train derailed in Western Australia's Pilbara region overnight, spilling thousands of tonnes of iron ore, while three people are in hospital after a separate rail accident near Kalgoorlie."
