Emergency crews were called in to help people off the train.

Police said no-one was in the car and there were no reported injuries.

“The Albury-bound V-Line train has struck a car about 500 metres down the line [and] dragged it up the end there, in a pretty precarious spot,” Sergeant Richard Eldridge said.

Some services between Albury and Southern Cross this morning were replaced by buses.

V-Line is hoping services will resume as usual later today.
