In his 10-year career as a train driver, Brad Main has never been involved in anything quite like Roy Hill’s pink trucks and locomotives initiative to support and raise awareness of breast cancer.
On Friday 15 February 2019, Brad, who has been contracted to drive Roy Hill trains for three years by Karijini Rail, had the honour of being at the helm of the first ever pink locomotive’s six-hour journey to the mine.
Shipping partner Berge Bulk has followed Roy Hill’s lead, and is the first to paint one of its ore ships pink. Read Berge Bulk’s recent article on how Roy Hill’s commitment to support breast cancer awareness has inspired the company and shipping crew to get behind the cause.
Happy International Women’s Day
