where you can get help from staff.
Trains across the CityRail network are delayed up to 60 minutes due to overhead wiring and signal problems and the extreme heat. Frequent services are operating but they are not to timetable so passengers are advised to allow additional travel time, listen to station announcements and check indicator boards. Train tickets can also be used to catch Sydney Buses and Sydney Ferries services instead until 8pm. Buses are supplementing some trains between Campbelltown and Moss Vale on the Southern Highlands Line after an earlier bushfire at Glenlee. Buses will be replacing trains between Wyong and Fassifern on the Newcastle & Central Coast Line until early Saturday due to urgent overhead wiring repairs at Dora Creek. Buses are also supplementing some trains between Kiama and Bomaderry (Nowra) on the South Coast Line due to the delays.
