Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
CityRail says there will be delays of up to 10 minutes on the Bankstown, south and inner-west lines in Sydney this morning because of a freight train derailment overnight.
The lead locomotive left the freight line between Beralla and Lidcombe, causing some rear cars to block passenger lines.
While the passenger lines have been cleared for now, speed restrictions near the site are slowing down services and CityRail spokeswoman Helen Willoughby says the freight line will not be cleared till Saturday.
"We do need to bring in a crane tomorrow morning to lift that derailed locomotive and we will need to take possession of some passenger lines and we will let know passengers know of any alternative passenger arrangements," she said.
Ms Willoughby says it is not yet known what caused the derailment.
"The matter's under full investigation and the Office of Transport Safety Investigations is currently on-site along with other emergency crews," she said.
"At this stage we're planning to have the recovery operation take place tomorrow to minimise any customer impact on week-day services."
