Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
There are "very significant" delays on the Eastern Suburbs & Illawarra train line this morning after a train derailment damaged tracks at Tempe, transport officials say.
A private freight train was between Hurstville and Tempe about 3.45am when it derailed and rerailed itself, a RailCorp spokesman said.
One of the train wagons was believed to have damaged the train. Point switches at Wolli Creek were also damaged, he said.
The trains were further delayed after a pregnant woman became seriously ill at Arncliffe train station.
A Transport NSW spokeswoman said there were "major delays" on the line of more than 30 minutes.
East Hills Line trains were being diverted via the Airport Line, she added.
The freight train stopped at Tempe and RailCorp engineers were working to fix the track.
It was not known how long it would take for the track to be fixed, the spokeswoman said.
A commuter at Rockdale train station said passengers were frustrated and annoyed at the delays, sighing loudly when the Arncliffe delay was announced.
The passenger, who asked not to be named, said there was a lot of pushing and shoving as passengers tried to get on to a crowded train that had arrived at the station.
