Train services are operating normally on the Ipswich line after a truck which hit a rail bridge at Graceville in Brisbane's inner-west left passengers stranded for nearly an hour this morning.
The crash occurred just after 8.40am and caused significant damage to the truck, which became wedged underneath the bridge on Long Street.
It is not believed the truck driver was hurt.
A witness said the collision caused "an explosion" that destroyed the truck's trailer.
"It was just the most incredible noise," the woman told ABC radio.
"It just exploded in every direction. He sounded like he hit it at 50 kilometres an hour.
A Translink spokesman said the extent of the damage to the rail bridge was still being assessed but two of four lines were deemed safe and trains had been restarted between Sherwood and Milton.
Buses replaced rail services between Corinda and Milton stations until about 9.30am.
"Two of the four tracks there are back on and later we'll be looking at getting the remaining two lines reopened," a Translink spokesman said.
