There's been another frightening incident on our trains, with young male attacking an elderly man - and all of it caught on camera.
7NEWS has obtained vision of the fight, which is one of hundreds now occurring on the network each year - with the City Circle identified as the most dangerous train line in Sydney.
"F***ing don't touch me you c*** ... what are you going to do ya cheeky dog ... " a man in the disturbing video is heard saying.
"Let's go c***" the young man then yells at the elderly man, who tries to defend himself.
The pair are then seen becoming involved in a scuffle on the train as fellow passengers watch on.

"We do not tolerate any violence or anti-social behaviour on our trains here in NSW - whether that be passengers of whether that be staff," Regional Transport Minister Paul Toole said.
"Now, this matter is currently being investigated by New South Wales TrainLink."
"This matter has also been referred to the police."
Sydney's rail violence hotspot is the City Circle, with almost 200 assaults in the space of a year.
Next are train stations around Blacktown, with almost 100 incidents - followed by the Cumberland region, then Parramatta, Penrith and Bankstown.
This latest incident of violence on a Sydney train comes just months after vision emerged of a police officer being stabbed in the back with a hunting knife, in a random attack at Central Station.
The constable was lucky his injuries weren't life-threatening and his attacker remains behind bars.

"We know that millions of customers every week use our trains here in this state - and we want to make sure that passengers have a very comfortable and safe journey.
"We've got something like over 11,200 cameras on our transport network here in the state," he said.
