Passengers on a train from Kiama to Sydney had to move carriages after an unexpected visitor joined them for their journey.

People on board the 6:54pm NSW TrainLink service spotted the children's python as their train approached Wollongong and alerted staff.

"Customers were moved from the carriage which was then locked off and arrangements were made for a snake handler to meet the train on arrival at Central Station," a NSW TrainLink spokesperson said.

"The train arrived at Central at 9:02pm and the snake was located on a luggage rack of the carriage before being taken away by the snake handler who's now looking after it."

Last year, there was a kerfuffle on a Central Coast train when police confiscated a metre-long python from a passenger, who did not have a permit for the reptile.
