Nexus, which runs the travel network, said the incident was reported today, Wednesday, October 14, at around 4.15pm, after the woman walked 300 metres along the tracks from Tyne Dock towards Chichester station.
A train was taken out of service so the police could travel slowly to where she was sitting and they coaxed her on board before she was helped off the service at Tyne Dock.
“Trains were immediately halted so that the incident could be dealt with safely.
“The police were called and they got the woman off the tracks and back on board a train so that services could resume.
"Nobody has been injured.”
Following the incident, services were subject to delays in some areas.
