Disruption to train services between Peterborough and Ely is likely to continue for 'a few days'.
A Freight Train caused extensive damage when it derailed yesterday (14 August) and all trains are unable to run until repairs are carried out.
East Midlands Trains said:
There has been a derailed train yesterday between Ely North Junction and Ely West Junction. This is between Peterborough and Ely and continues disrupting our trains on the Liverpool Lime Street / Nottingham / Norwich route.
Today, our trains from Norwich to Liverpool Lime Street will start at Peterborough and our trains from Liverpool Lime Street to Norwich will terminate at Peterborough.
Network Rail engineers are on site working to recover the derailed wagons, which will need lifting away by crane.
