It was a busy day for emergency services all round yesterday as the State Emergency Service was tasked to carry out multiple 'life saving rescues' as flash flooding caused havoc across the region.

The flooding also hampered efforts to get out to scene of the derailment and assess the damage, with FRNSW unsure of how long the clean up will take given the challenging conditions in accessing the scene.
