Back on track: Southeastern services due to resume this afternoon on Sidcup line

Southeastern services are due to resume on the Sidcup line around 3pm after Network Rail managed to lift a derailed train back onto tracks.

Safety checks after the train was moved appear to show no significant damage, and services are due to commence again.

Greenwich line reduction

The blockage also reduced trains on the Greenwich line as ’rounders’ via Slade Green loop didn’t run which operate twice an hour.

The accident seems to have occured at the end of engineering works by Network Rail over the weekend, which were a factor in the incident.


As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.
