Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
A power supply issue has caused delays for all train services heading from Sydney city on Monday afternoon, and the flow-on is expected to impact on some evening peak trains.
The issue was caused by a faulty cable, which stopped services running along the City Circle for 40 minutes on Monday morning, a spokesperson for Sydney Trains said.
This caused flow-on delays to services on the T1 North Shore, Northern and Western, T2 Inner West and Leppington, T3 Bankstown and T8 Airport and South lines.
Sydney Trains will be running a regular evening peak service, the spokesperson said, but "some trains will be operating out of sequence".
Passengers on Monday afternoon were urged to allow extra travel time due to the urgent repairs.
T1 services to Epping via Strathfield were delayed by about 30 minutes by 12.15pm, while services to Berowra were delayed about 15 minutes.
Trains on the T8 Airport line were running up to 38 minutes late, some services on the T3 to Liverpool or Lidcombe were up to 45 minutes late, but T4 services to Waterfall and Cronulla were running on time.
By 1pm, the longest delays were 30 minutes on the T1 North Shore line and 37 minutes on the T2 Leppington line.
It is the second time this year Sydney Trains has had a power issue at the station.
On February 22, a power outage caused lengthy wait-times on most train lines running through Central.
That day, delays ranged from five minutes up to half an hour on affected lines.
