Network Rail has thanked rail passengers for their patience after emergency repairs to the overhead lines on the West Coast Mainline.
Teams engineers worked overnight to repair damage to the cables at Hest Bank between Lancashire and Oxenholme.
The complex electrical work to the overhead lines which supply power to trains was completed by 7 am this morning.
However, with trains and crews displaced for start of service, passengers are being advised for delays.
What did the officials say?
Phil James, director for Network Rail’s North West route, said:
“I want to say sorry to passengers for the disruption and discomfort they faced making their journeys yesterday. The damaged overhead lines made travelling by train very difficult at times and we thank passengers for their patience while we worked hard to get people moving again.
“Everything was done to get things back up and running as fast as we could, with dozens of staff out fixing the damage and repairing the railway throughout the night, ready for today.
“Trains are running again this morning but please, check before you travel for the latest information.”
