Track repaired and train removed after Waterloo derailment

Following yesterday’s (Tuesday 15 August) partial derailment at London Waterloo station, in which a South West Trains service collided with a Network Rail engineering wagon, Network Rail workers have removed the train and completed repairs to the track overnight.

Two of the three platforms have now re-opened and we are expecting to operate virtually all of the planned services today (Wednesday 16 August). However, passengers are advised that there may still be delays while we work to re-open the third platform.

For the latest information on changes to services, please check the National Rail Enquiries website.
