A second activist has obstructed the Hunter's rail lines Tuesday morning after a similar stunt by the same climate activist group on Monday.

Police have removed a second protestor who obstructed the rail lines at Sandgate this morning after a woman was earlier assisted down from a 20 metre electrical pylon around 6am.
