The railway between Whitehaven and Workington is closed due to the sea wall being breached a Parton.
The sea wall, which supports and protects the railway, and around 700 yards of ballast – the heavy stone which provides the foundations for the railway track – were damaged by high tides as Storm Jonas hit the Cumbrian coastline.
Ian Joslin from Network Rail said:
Our structural experts are on site assessing the damage to the sea wall and track caused by yesterday’s storm but are at the mercy of the tides for some parts of the assessment.
Once the extent of the damage is clear we will be able to plan the repairs so we can safely re-open the line to passengers as quickly as possible.
The A781 is now closed between A780 Buccleuch Street and Dockhead in Dumfries due to flooding.

Communities in Cumbria are being warned to be prepared for the risk of flooding on Tuesday and Wednesday due to a new storm from the west.
The Environment Agency say high spring tides combined with high winds could cause a flood risk along north west coasts and heavy rainfall could also bring a risk of river flooding.
Rivers and areas already affected by record river levels throughout the wettest December on record, including Cumbria, are likely to be at risk, with the potential for very heavy rainfall inundating drains and making river levels rise.
Residents are being urged to check their flood risk, be prepared for flooding and be cautious if travelling, particularly on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Heavy rainfall brings the risk of flooding on Tuesday and Wednesday across the south west, Midlands, Cumbria, Lancashire and Yorkshire, with the potential for high waves along south west and north west coasts.
Our teams have worked around the clock over the past few months, first responding to the recent floods and then helping support communities with recovery, and we will continue to do so with more heavy rainfall on the way.
Our thoughts are with all those who have suffered serious flooding over the past few months, and it is once again vital that people prepare for heavy rainfall and the risk of further flooding.
We will issue flood warnings and alerts where necessary as rivers respond to the rainfall, which could also inundate drains, so people need to be ready for flash flooding in some places.
We urge people to check their flood risk, prepare for flooding, follow the advice from emergency services and never risk driving through flood water.
A group of volunteers have been helping to clear mounds of debris away from fences near to the River Petteril in Calthwaite.
