Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
Major delays are expected for rail commuters in Sydney's northwest after overhead wiring came down on the Richmond branch line.
The cables came down at Schofields about 2.10pm (AEDT) on Wednesday, affecting services between Quakers Hill and Mulgrave, NSW's Transport Coordination Group says.
Passengers travelling from Riverstone station were forced to abandon the train and walk 150 metres back to the station, it said.
"Buses are being brought in now to replace services and customers are encouraged to delay their travel or make alternative arrangements where possible," the NSW government agency said in a statement.
Repair crews are on site and working to restore train services as soon as possible.
It's unclear how long the repairs will take, but delays are expected for the entire afternoon peak.
However, the disruption was unlikely to affect the rest of CityRail's network, the Transport Coordination Group said.
