Scotrail says passengers travelling between Carlisle and Glasgow via Dumfries will face delays from Monday morning.
Two engineering trains collided on Saturday morning damaging the track. No one was hurt.
Trains between Glasgow Central and Carlisle via Dumfries will terminate at Kilmarnock and start back from Dumfries. Replacement buses will run between Kilmarnock and Dumfries.
A crane is being brought in to remove the wagons before the repairs can begin. The line is expected to be closed for about two weeks.
Once the derailed wagons have been recovered the repair work will take approximately three days to complete. Therefore it is expected that the line will remain closed for a number of days. During this time passenger services will start and terminate at Dumfries and Kilmarnock and freight traffic will be diverted via West Coast Main Line and Paisley.

"What's new, pussycat?" you might ask.
Well, to answer your question, there are just three days until Sir Tom Jones performs in Carlisle.
The Welsh singer will perform at Bitts Park on Friday 31st July, as part of his 2015 US and European tour.
Sir Tom Jones will be supported by country-pop duo, The Shires.
“I’m excited to be performing at places I’ve never been to before, including Carlisle; it’s always good to visit new places. “I promise a good show in Carlisle. My singing voice is still as strong as ever, though as you get older, your voice gets lower and so my tone and range has gone from a tenor to a baritone. My lower tones are much richer than they were.”
“Excitement is building in the city, as we get ready to welcome music legend, Sir Tom Jones. The show once again raises the profile of the city as a live music destination. We’ve hosted some great musicians in the past, but Sir Tom tops the bill.
“Carlisle is all set to welcome thousands of music lovers for the concert and the local economy will be boosted as we’re expecting fans to travel from around the country. ”
