As many as 13 people have been injured after a train hit a buffer stop at the end of the rail line at Richmond station in Sydney's north-west.

NSW Fire and Rescue said three people were initially trapped inside the train, but have now been freed. 17 NSW Ambulance services are responding, in addition to three rescue helicopters.

The train hit a buffer stop at the end of the station's platform.

The crash reportedly sent passengers flying through the train.

Cops said that five of the 16 taken to a local hospital needed to be treated first on the train.

"No patients were trapped by compression, however several patients were classified as trapped as they were unable to leave the train without assistance from paramedics", said Turner.
