The Moree to Sydney Xplorer service was stopped less than a hour into its trip when it hit a ute at a rail crossing near Millie Road in Bellata.

At About 8.40am emergency services were called to the scene 50 kilometres north of Narrabri after the southbound XPT struck a Holden Rodeo at the crossing in Bellata.

The 64-year-old male driver of the ute died at the scene.


There were no reports of injuries on board the train, which was carrying 18 passengers and three crew.

The train was evacuated as police forensically examined the vehicles.

The passengers were put on buses from Bellata.

Passengers from Werris Creek onward were placed on buses for the rest of the journey to Sydney.

Playing 100 games for a club is a special milestone and for Narrabri's James, Daniel and Sam Kahl it is an honour they now all share.

Against Inverell on Saturday, Sam became the latest Blue Boar to inscribe their name on the 100-game honour board.

In doing so he joined his father (and current club president) James (154) and brother Daniel (107*) in the annals of the club's history.

They are the third father and son centurions for the club following Jack (231) and Luke Findley (155*), and Peter (147) and Matt McDonnell (136*).

Daniel reached 100 games last year against Pirates.
