Buses are replacing trains between Albion Park and Kiama.
Update, 5pm: Technicians have cleared the train to travel to Dunmore station, where passengers disembarked a short time ago.
Affected customers were to be transfered to buses bound for Albion Park Station.
A device connecting the train to the overhead wires was tangled when the tree came down but it was allowed to continue to Dunmore.
The line re-opened about 5pm and services are to resume shortly.
