Delays continue on the South Coast Line despite train services resuming after an earlier grass fire between Unanderra and Dapto.
Services are travelling at reduced speed through affected area.

Commuters have been told to listen to announcements and check indicator boards.
A Fire and Rescue NSW spokeswoman said crews from Unanderra contained the fire about 12.25pm and are in the process of blacking out the area.

The fire was fast-moving at one stage, she said.
RailCorp staff are assisting fire crews.
