Hundreds of passengers have been left stuck on a train after it derailed on a busy Sydney line during the peak hour commute this afternoon.
A large piece of metal pierced through the floor in one of the carriages, narrowly missing commuters, when the train derailed near Edgecliff Station about 4.45pm (AEDT).
There were loud screeching noises before the train shuddered to a halt, leaving 700 stranded on the train and needing to be evacuated.
"All I heard was a loud screeching sound and then the train started rattling really loudly and then people started screaming and running," said Fairfax Media producer Annie Dang, who was on the train when it derailed.
Passenger Peter Pulu told The Sydney Morning Herald the metal bar broke through "like a monster coming up from the floor".
Photos uploaded to social media show a large piece of metal protruding from the floor of the derailed train carriage.
