A settlement has been reached in an unfair dismissal case related to the November 5 train derailment in the Pilbara.

The 63 year old Frick was sacked just before Christmas for failing to apply hand brakes when he alighted from the train to try and find a wire that had come loose and brought the train to a halt.
