Rail commuters are facing a second day of disruption after a crash led to a train derailment in Leeds.
The collision, between two empty East Midlands trains at the Neville Hill maintenance depot, took place in the early hours of Tuesday.
Northern Rail said services between Leeds and York were affected and bus services were running on some routes while the carriages were removed.
Passengers are advised to check with National Rail Enquiries before travel.
Network Rail said engineers worked through Tuesday night to remove overhead line electrification and allow a lifting crane to come on site and remove the crashed carriages.
The lifting itself is likely to take all day to complete.
A spokeswoman for Network Rail said: "Services will resume as quickly as possible but depend upon the lifting operation and weather conditions.
"Passengers are advised to check with National Rail Enquiries or their rail operator to check individual service details."
A spokeswoman for East Midlands Trains said nobody was injured as a result of the collision.
"We are carrying out an investigation into the incident and would like to apologise to passengers whose journeys are affected," she said.
Elsewhere, Northern Rail services are delayed between Leeds and Manchester Victoria due to flooding at Smithy Bridge.
