Trains were cancelled between St Marys and Blacktown for almost two hours following a fatality at Rooty Hill station.
It was reported about 11.10am that a person had been “injured” by a train.
It’s been confirmed that person has died.
One witness who was on board the train at the time described hearing a “huge thud” before the carriage came to a halt in front of Rooty Hill High School.
“[I] didn't realize until we were being off-loaded that it was a fatality,” she said.
“We didn't even reach the platform, we all had to be off-loaded off the train.”
A Transport Management Centre spokesperson announced that normal service had resumed about 1pm.
“Trains on the Blue Mountains Line and the T1 Western Line have resumed citybound between St Marys and Blacktown after a partial closure due to a fatality at Rooty Hill earlier,” the spokesperson said.
“Buses may supplement some services.
“Passengers are advised to continue to allow extra travel time, listen to station announcements and check indicator boards.”
