Greater Anglia says its trains are running again into London Liverpool Street - but warn services are subject to delays of up to 70 minutes.
It follows signalling problems earlier today.
The closure of the Heinz factory in north Norfolk is "devastating news" for workers, union representatives have said.
Usdaw, the Union of Shop, Distributive and Allied Workers, said the timing of the announcement - just days before Christmas - made it particularly upsetting.
David Gill, Usdaw national officer, said the workers did "not deserve this" but acknowledged the loss of the contract with the owner of the Aunt Bessie's brand had been a big blow to the factory.
"Confirmation of the closure is devastating news for our members, their families and the wider community, particularly just before Christmas.
"Our priority is to work with the company to help find alternative employment for the staff. We will continue in consultation meetings throughout January to agree the procedures for the expected closure of the plant in April.
"There is no doubt that the loyal and committed staff on-site do not deserve this, but the loss of the Aunt Bessie's contract has proved to be a fatal blow."
Heinz has confirmed it will close its Westwick factory in Norfolk next year.
The food manufacturer first began consulting on plans to shut the site near North Walsham in October following a decision by the William Jackson Food Group - owner of the Aunt Bessie's Brand - not to renew its licence with the company.
Heinz says, without the contract to manufacture its frozen potato products, there is no longer enough work to keep the factory operating.
A spokesman said attempts to find a buyer for the site had failed.
The factory will continue operating until April 2015, when the Aunt Bessie's licence ends.
Heinz will now focus its efforts on helping workers to find other jobs and will carry on discussing closure plans with unions until at least mid-January.
Trains on the Great Eastern Mainline are at a standstill this afternoon.
Operator Abellio Greater Anglia says there are problems with the electricity supply between Shenfield and Chelmsford.
It means all trains out of London Liverpool Street heading to Chelmsford and Norwich have been suspended.
Greater Anglia is warning passengers to expect delays and cancellations. It is not known when services will begin again.
The region's ambulance trust dealt with more than 2,700 emergency calls last night as crews battled through what has been dubbed "Black Friday".
Emergency services had expected it to be a busy evening as many people headed out for festive celebrations on the final weekend before Christmas.
The East of England Ambulance Service said it saw a 7.5% increase on the average volume of daily calls over the last four weeks.
The trust's locality director Matt Broad urged people to think carefully before dialling 999.
“We were extremely busy yesterday and last night, but I would like to thank our staff in the control rooms and on the frontline who worked really hard to provide a good service to patients.
"The Christmas and winter period is always busy for the ambulance service and I would encourage anyone who needs medical help to choose well – if you need help but it is not an emergency please call 111, which is open 24 hours a day and who will be able to get the right help for you.”

An image of a seal glistening in the morning sun has scooped first prize in the RSPCA's young photography competition.
16-year old Owen Hearn from Leighton Buzzard was named the overall winner of the RSPCA Young Photographers Awards 2014.
The picture was taken on the Norfolk coastline. Owen also won the 12 to 15-year old category for the same photograph.
Wildlife expert Chris Packham led the judging panel.
"It really stood out to the whole panel as soon as we saw it. Through this image he has really shown his talent and as fellow photographers we were jealous we hadn't taken the shot ourselves."
