A derailed freight train between Lee and Hither Green has completely blocked the Sidcup line and causing disruption across Southeastern services this morning.
Today was supposed to be the day that services continued to move towards normality with the possibility of new trains that moved from South Western Railway possibly starting to run.
The train has come off the tracks as the train headed around the Lee Loop junction not too far from Hither Green sidings.
The earliest that services are believed to be able to resume on the line is midday.
Network Rail now state it is likely the line will be closed all day:
“Sidcup line is likely to remain blocked for most of the day while we work to re-rail a locomotive that came off the tracks at Lee yesterday.”
