At least 13 people have been injured, two severely, after a passenger train collided with buffers at Richmond station, north-west of Sydney.

Seven News also says three people remain trapped on the train and rescue helicopters have landed at nearby Richmond Oval. Emergency services are on the scene.

Three choppers, 17 ambulance crews and Fire & Rescue teams raced to the scene.

But Sydney Trains CEO Howard Collins reportedly said it was still on its rails.

"All passengers are now off the train following accident at Richmond Station", it tweeted.

Witnesses have described a scene of chaos, with the train apparently hitting the buffer at the end of the line "at speed".
