Police say two people were seen pushing a car onto train tracks on Adelaide's Seaford rail line before a train crashed into the sedan at Lonsdale on Monday night.
Services on the line were suspended after the passenger train struck the empty vehicle.
Police arrested two men, aged 21 and 23, from Christies Downs. They were both charged with endangering life, illegal interference and property damage.
The men have been refused police bail and are expected to appear in the Christies Beach Magistrates Court today.
Police said two men were arrested last night and the trains were expected to be clear by morning.
The unusual incident happened just after 7:00pm, along the station platforms.
Police said there was no-one inside the car, and the train hit the vehicle at a low speed.
They said it took several hours for emergency services to clear the tracks.
"Police have reviewed CCTV and two suspects were seen pushing the car towards the tracks before running off," SA Police said in a statement.
"No-one on the train was physically injured and Public Transport Services have estimated damage to be about $100,000."
They said several cars in the nearby car park had also been damaged, with owners asked to call police to make a report.
Police said trains were now running as normal but substitute buses were used for several hours last night.
