The power has returned Sydney's train network but major delays are expected this afternoon and this evening following a police operation at Redfern station.
At Milsons Point, city-bound commuters were advised to walk across the Sydney Harbour Bridge when trains stopped before lunchtime on Thursday after a "trespasser" at Redfern station shut down the network.
By 4:00pm the flow-on effect from the disruption was continuing across the Sydney network, with some trains delayed by almost an hour.
Redfern is one of the city's busiest stations, with multiple train lines passing through the station.
"NSW Police ordered all services be halted and overhead power switched off while the situation was resolved," the statement said.
The police operation finished just after midday and Redfern station has re-opened.
According to Sydney Trains, buses are supporting train services between Campbelltown and Macarthur, Hornsby and Berowra, Penrith and Emu Plains, Glenfield and Leppington, and Kiama and Nowra "with extra on standby as needed".
The trespasser is now in the care of emergency services.
